When you find mint and raspberry at a great price and had originally planned to make a traditional fennel, orange and black olive salad, you might decide to make this salad of fennel, mint, red onions and black olives, instead. Whipping some of the softer raspberries with balsamic vinegar and a bit of oil makes a fine dressing for this combo. And f you like a vinegary salad dressing, you might, for the sake of your calorie intake, try it without oil--not bad at all!

1/2 cup firm raspberries

1 small red onion, sliced
1/4 cup chopped pitted black olives
