    Absolutely the most wonderful salad to serve all year!

    This is the most scrumptious salad recipe ever tasted. It is crispy , crunchy, savory, and a delight to serve and eat.

    This is a really crunchy salad as far as the toppings go, and the fennel is very sweet; cutting it, it smells just like licorice. It was really easy to make while preparing other things, and it would go well with a lot of food because it is pretty mild, but still flavorful.
