A wonderful cook book and a wonderful dish. I just love this. Grilling does wonderful things to the fennel (use charcoal if you can) and potato and fennel are a match made in heaven. I usually just put it all in a bowl and toss it togather rather than drizzel over the top. Great bbq dish.

This is really delicious, though I made one slightly radical change - I had everything in the house except potatoes, so I used yams (orange sweet potatoes) instead. Try it some time, it's really tasty. I'll cook it with regular potatoes next time, or even a combination of both. The sauce is also great, and I bet it would make a good veggie dip. Thanks for the recipe!
