Wonderful salad. I'm the only one in my house who likes fennel so I treated myself and made everyone else a casserole. The only things I'll change next time is to try a clove of roasted garlic in the dressing and pick a different olive. I think the ordinary black olives just didn't do it for me. I didn't use mint, I used oregano and I'll use it again. I love oregano with all these flavors and think it worked well. Fresh mint isn't so easy to come by around here. Looking forward to making this again. This time I had it as the main dish with a side of 2 chicken drumsticks baked with oregano and garlic but I think this can hold its own for a light supper or lunch dish. It also present very well. Thanks for posting!

I made this wonderful salad exactly as posted and it came out perfect. The vibrant colours and the heavenly salad dressing complemented each and every ingredient to the max. Thanks for a wonderful lunch FT. Made for the Dining Daredevils team for ZWT5

Wonderful taste, texture and eye appeal. I wanted a salad to take to my company's BBQ. Something with a masculine over tone. There are 21 guys and 3 women. I made this, but used basil instead of mint. Also sprinkled with pinenuts. It was received can I say handsomely :) by everyone. Had none to take home. Thanks for sharing.

Oh I love this, since I was making chicken and potatoes in the oven, I decided to roast this first. It is such an easy salad to make, I only put a mint leaf and didn't use the olives, but with the orange and red onion its great. Went well with my chicken too.
