This salad is most delicious, I make it quite often in the summer time when fennel is in season, everyone just loves it....roasting the fennel, onion and the garlic just seems to bring out so much flavor in this will love this!


  • 1 1/2 cups fennel bulbs, cut in half lengthwise
  • 1 cup fresh plum tomato, diced (do nto use canned for this recipe)
