I made this with regular lettuce and no fennel, as I didn't have it. I used 2 cucumbers and served the salad with falafel. It didn't sweep me off my feet but both my partner and I enjoyed it. Very light and healthy lunch. One day I'll try it with fennel too (haven't ever eaten fennel but I see it occasionally in one of the supermarkets I frequent in India, where I am living at the moment). I find the dressing tasty although it has no salt and I didn't really miss salt here. Good if you want to reduce your salt intake!

I didn't put fennel in, as I don't like it. But it still tasted delicious!

I used Tesco's low fat honey and mustard salad dressing and it made the salad taste even better!
