Many Italians & especially Sicilians like to end a meal with sliced raw fennel, believing that this crisp vegetable will aid digestion. Also known as sweet anise, it has a licorice like flavor and a crunchy texture. Fennel paired with orange and a tangy vinaigrette, as in this recipe, makes a delightfully exotic salad!
Beautiful colors and inviting flavors will make this hearty side dish a keeper in your recipe box.
This is an easy side dish that makes good use of summer squash and fresh bell peppers.
