We all liked this a lot (except, of course for THE PICKY ONE). I added closer to 1/4c vinegar because it needed more sharpness; perhaps cut back on the oil next time to 1/3c? Also, I subed my own ginger spice vinegar because i thought it would be yummy & it was. ;) Is it supposed to be 1 TABLESPOON of chili flakes?? I used only 1tsp so my family would eat it. There was a nice amount of heat. I have some dressing left after eating all the fennel, so I'm gonna slice up some more to have tomorrow! Thanks! mADE FOR pac sPRING '08. dRATTED CAPSLOCK...
