Fabulous side to any BBQ. Great with meat and fish. A regular for us

This is standard on our BBQ menu. Its a firm favourite even with those who are not olive fans. The dressing is delicious. Would certainly recommend that you try it. I agree with the other post regarding the extra oil.

This is a wonderful recipe - it is delicious, a great warm salad as an alternative to the usual, and easy. I will be making this again many times. I added one extra teaspoon of oil to the fennel before grilling - otherwise I just followed the recipe.
