I like the concept of this salad, but would change a couple of things. First, I liked the fennel seed's taste, I didn't like the texture. They were hard and unexpected to bite into. Next time I think I'll try grinding them first. I used dried cranberries, just my preference and I'd like the mixture a bit creamier, so even a tablespoon of lite mayo made a huge difference. Thanks for posting, I'll make this again.
What makes this salad different from other similar ones is the fennel seed. I was not sure about it, but it really added a unique and pleasant flavor to the mix. I used mixed dried berries instead of raisins, and a prepared raspberry vinaigrette that I like, but otherwise followed this recipe. Oh, and used chicken instead of turkey, because that was what I had. I made about half of it and it was my lunch today. Thanks for posting.
