Fennel Salad with Citrus Dijon Dressing

I have watched the Food Network for years, and always thought that Fennel looked interesting...and all those cooks said it was so we tried it this past week. Here's my quick and easy recipe for a little side salad that is a great compliment to my Stuffed Turkey meatloaf or a few good Chicken Sausage links....

1 large bulb Fennel, which you can eat all parts of....

2 teaspoons Coarse Ground Dijon mustard (Trader Joe's is yummy)

Juice of 1/4 navel orange

Olive Oil...about 1 Tablespoon

Cut fennel bulb into quarters and slice across the wedges into 1/4 inch strips.

Whisk Dijon, orange juice and olive oil together until mixed well.

Pour over fennel and serve!

Crunchy, licorice flavor of the fennel mixed with the dressing makes a great side salad...
