For the dressing:

Place all the ingredients in a thoroughly clean glass jar. Screw on the lid and shake to combine. Refrigerate until ready to use.

For the salad:

Separate the lettuce leaves, discarding the outer leaves and the stalks. Wash the leaves thoroughly and gently dry in a salad spinner. Place in a large bowl with the fennel. Just before serving, toss the salad with the dressing.
