I made this for a bbq last night-I was pretty pleased with it. I used a mandolin to get really thin slices of fennel and guessed that one lot of oil mentioned twice in the ingredient might be something acidic, so used a good red wine vinegar. Thanks for posting.
A good recipe for trying fennel for the first time. Mild and pleasant tasting, but I didn't find that the taste of the olives "fit" with the rest of the salad so I'll probably leave them out next time.
I've used this healthy salad several times to accompany fish dishes-it's superb
