Grapefruit Fennel Salad with Citrus Basil Vinaigrette

I love fennel.  When I saw fennel in the Bountiful Basket this week, I was so happy!  I used to go to a restaurant because the Citrus Salad with fennel and basil vinaigrette were wonderful.  The restaurant closed and I had to make my own salad. Fennel is crisp with a hint of licorice and balances so well with the tartness of the grapefruit.  The citrus basil vinaigrette adds to the flavor elements.  This is the recipe I developed and I hope you will enjoy it, too!
