Fennel and Tomato Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette

Seriously simple and so tasty!
This is a great combination of flavors and textures. The tomato is soft, juicy and acidic and the fennel is crunchy and complex with a slight anise flavor, The lemon rounds out the flavors and make this a fresh tasting healthy side dish to serve with any meal.
2 Large tomatoes (they must be fresh picked from the garden or local from the farmers market. Grocery store tomatoes are tasteless and covered in wax.
1 Large Fennel Bulb with fronds
1 Lemon
1/2 Tsp dijon mustard
1/4 cup olive oil
pinch of salt
Pinch of pepper
pinch of sugar

Slice the tomato and fennel and place in a large bowl
Top with the Fronds from the fennel (the top greens that look like dill)
Whisk together the ingredients for the dressing until emulsified and drizzle over the fennel & Tomato
Serve immediately YUM
