I thought this was an excellent recipe, a great way to use fennel which is not used enough, I love it. I followed the recipe exactly and did use cannellini beans which I cheated and used from the can. Why heat up the kitchen unnecessarily. The only thing I will add next time is garlic salt instead of plain salt.

Very tasty salad, I used the canned beans (washed and drained)too. Added a crushed clove garlic and used toasted slivered almonds because that is what I had. The soft beans mixed with the crunchy fennel and nuts created a nice texture,shaved the cheese Yummy!!
