I thought I might like this salad because I have had cooked fennel before but . . . it was just okay . . . I doubt I will make it again.  I found that fennel has a flavour that is a little too "perfumy" for my liking.  If I was served this salad at someone else's home I wouldn't spit it into my napkin though . . .
