  4. ½ cup fresh orange juice
  5. 1 tablespoon Greek mustard
  6. 2 teaspoons Greek honey or petimezi (grape molasses)
  7. 1 tablespoon Greek balsamic
  8. Salt, pepper to taste

  13. ½ - 2/3 cup crumbled Greek feta cheese
Instructions

  2. Remove the base and stalks from the fennel and cut the bulb in half and then into 1/-4-inch slices, lengthwise.
