This salad is made of such fresh, energetic ingredients, all fighting for the spotlight but at the same time performing so well together. It's the perfect addition to a grilled steak or a hearty meat sauce on pasta. I was not willing to try fennel for so long because of it's strong licorice flavor, but paired with quick-marinated purple onion and the absinthal bite of the radish I actually quite enjoyed it! Crisp and fresh, and so easy! I hope you give this recpie a try. Enjoy!
