I received a good-sized fennel bulb in my farm box this week and never prepared fennel, so I was happy to find this salad recipe. What a nice departure from regular old green salads! The anise flavor combined with the juicy sweet orange, tart lemon juice, briny olives and a hint of heat from the crushed pepper makes it complex and bright. Although I ate it on its own, it would be a nice accompaniment to fish. I'll make this one again!
