I went way out of my comfort area when I decided to try this salad. It is quite different from the norm and the combination of fennel and citrus is very nice. Thanks for posting.

A simlply lovely salad. I have always loved the combination of fennel and citrus, but here, the addition of the olives and the sesame dressing is a new twist--and a good one. Thanks, Annisette!
