"I would make this again but it needs salt and maybe more

Lemon peel. Maybe Ontario in December is not a good test. Everything comes from a hothouse. Nice with venison, clean taste. Janet. FE"

"I tried this recipe because cucumbers are one of my favorite veggies and I wanted to try fennel. I found this recipe and decided to try it even though I was not sure it would be a dish my husband would like. We both liked the salad; he took the leftovers to work the next day. Will be making this salad often."

"This is an excellent spring or summer salad. The fennel provides a new twist to the traditional cucumber salad."
