Shaved Fennel & Zucchini Salad
From the first blog that got me cooking and trying healthier foods, 101cookbooks.com. Also, I cannot stand fennel in any form, but it mysteriously works here. If you can withstand the licorice scent while cutting it, then you can eat it. Also, you definitely need a mandoline for this one.
