This was a quick and tasty meal. I used 2 tbsp of fresh sage and I loved the use of fennel. I thought the amount of onion was perfect and will remember next time to chop the onion and fennel to a small dice instead of a rough chop. I don't know how you could possibly get 4 serving out of this - tiny portions. I served this with bread and thought that was tasty. The lemon flavor is great in this dish. I think pureeing everything into a dip would also be fabulous. Thanks for posting.
Loved this one for both ease and flavor. The garlic and lemon made such a nice dressing for the fennel. My one change was to use fresh sage from the garden. Thinking this would also work well with a little cumin instead for a more North African feel or with the addition of chopped red peppers for taste as well as a visual twist. My one comment is that there was just a little too much onion, and I love onions. Thanks.
