In addition the mint, I juiced half a lime on mine, and it was fantastic! I didn't season it at all.

Much easier with a mandoline.

This is so delicious. I could barely wait the 20 minutes to smash this delicate and yet complicated and refreshing salad (I added fresh mint).

It was ok but needs a little something. Has potential

This is the greatest salad ever, I have never eaten fennal before

We LOVE this crisp and crunchy salad! Especially in the summer months. It stays crunchy for several days too (well, if it lasts that long in the fridge!). We make this quite frequently and really enjoy it just by itself, or as a side.

This is one of the best salads I've ever eaten! Crunchy and light. Fennel is a down-to-earth flavor, while the apple provides tartness. Yum!

This was a little strong for me at first but it was much better the next day after aging in the fridge.

Delicious served with some other non light items as a summer meal. We loved it.

add a cup or two of red seedless grapes to this and it was a great sweet and sour flavor very good

This actually was really great on a hot day. Might be too much to eat by itself, but is great along side an entree that is rich in flavor because of the citrus and crisp combination. This dish is better for pairing than alone. Also try it with a dry rose, chardonnay or riesling at dinner, will help the flavors speak for themselves :)

Too sour! Try adding a little sweetener.

We were not very crazy about this.
