Fennel which is sometimes confused with Anise, is one of the ingredients in this fresh salad.
Fennel is a hardy perennial plant, that is documented as an herb, and all parts of the plant are eaten, were as with the Anise, only the seeds are used for consumption.
The fennel has yellow flowers and feathery leaves. It is a native plant to the shores of the Mediterranean.

Fennel seeds are the primary flavor component in Italian sausage.
