  2. 2 Put them in a large bowl with the salad leaves, fennel, capers and olives.
  3. 3 Whisk together the vinegar, mustard, olive oil and honey, and season.
  4. 4 Pour the dressing over the salad and toss. Serve immediately.

    Nice. Tried this before, the fennel is not to everyone's taste. Try celeriac for an alternative. Hard boiled egg too.
