    I've only begun to eat fennel and have decided this salad of my own invention is one of the ways I like it the most!

      Just what I needed a light lunch packed with flavour. I did add a few red capsicum strips for colour as my salad leaves were all green. One word of warning let your pan cool down before you add the balsamic or it splatters everywhere and dries up. Thanks Jan, made for Make My Recipe - Spring Edition.

      I cheat when I tag recipes - well, I mean I only pick recipes with ingredients that Malcolm and I like! This was a prime example......we both love fennel, parmesan, red onions, bitter salad leaves and the dressing ingredients! This was a 10 star recipe for us - it was delectable. I cooked my fennel bulb a little longer than you specified, as I like it caramelised and charred for a more intense flavour. I used salad leaves from our garden - frisee, scarole, sorrel and the pretty green fronds from the fennel bulb. This was an elegant and sophisticated salad with an amazing depth of flavours............we loved it Jan, did I say!!! Made for Make My Recipe in the Oz/NZ forum - edition 8. Merci encore, FT:-)
