Though you can serve it immediately, this salad is best if it stands an hour before being served. To get the thinnest slices from your fennel bulb, quarter it before slicing to create more manageable sections that lie flat on the cutting board.
This was an easy and healthy salad where all the flavors were the highlight of the dish. The idea of quartering the fennel first really helped in getting it sliced thin, and the toasted almonds are a must!
