Fennel is perfect in a summer salad because it stays crisp in dressing and doesn't discolour. The lemon vinaigrette mellows its licorice flavour, so give this salad a try even if fennel isn't your favourite. For a boost of colour, add up to 2 tbsp more chopped fennel fronds if your fennel bulb still has a lot attached.
