Fennel bulbs are delicious roasted or sliced into salads, but if you throw away the fronds and leaves you are missing out. Some people use fennel leaves as a garnish or chopped like a herb, but fennel fronds and leaves make a flavorful and crunchy addition to your vegetable salads like other salad greens. 

Another favorite option is to combine fennel leaves with watermelon and crumbled feta cheese for a refreshing and sweet summer salad.
