3. Peel off several layers of the fennel until you have your desired amount.
4. Lay down each slice and cut them into strips and in half (if it is a small fennel, you may only need to cut it into strips).

8. Pour the vinegar and oil over the top of your salad and add half of the diced cubes of gorgonzola.
9. Mix the salad with your hands or a set of tongs being careful not to squash the cheese.
10. Add a sprinkle of grated parmesan if you so wish.

HOW TO SERVE:

2. Cusp the salad and squeeze it just a little bit so that you make it into a small ball.
