I tried this salad and wasn't as crazy about it as I thought it would be. It's a very fresh salad, and the flavours went well together, but it's extremely tart. I also found the grapefruit a little overpowering (I did about 70:30 grapefruit/fennel). If you are into that sort of thing, however, you may love it.
Wow, even with regular fennel, (wish I had access to baby fennel), and orange this was so simple and absolutely delicious and beautiful. My 8 year old daughter loved it, too. Thank you for such a great recipe.
