    Altered ingredient amounts. This was good the first night and would have gotten a 4, but it was delicious the next day, once the flavours had blended and the fennel had softened a bit. This makes a lot and, for us, the dressing wasn't enough as written. I made another half batch and thought it could have used even more, but the next day it was just right. The flavour of the fennel was mild and not at all overpowering. I ran it through a food processor with the slicer attachment to get it nice and thin. Overall, a good salad--I like it with a sprinkle of sea salt.  -  24 Jul 2008

    Love it love it love it. Will make it again and again. Great if you slice the fennel on a mandolin.  -  22 Jul 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
