Fennel and Cucumber Salad

I can just hear you saying, 'mmm.... fennel, now that sounds interesting. ' Because that's what I said when I first tried it and what everybody says whenever I serve it! Fennel is crunchy and sweet, with a refreshing taste that blends so well in a salad with minted dressing.
