Are you familiar with fresh fennel? It is a wonderful vegetable, with a gourmet flavor. Maybe my favorite way to eat fennel is in a fennel apple salad. This is what we are making today. Though relatively simple to make, the flavors are fantastic. Hope you enjoy!
1 small fennel bulb, very thinly sliced
1 small apple (I use Honeycrisp), very thinly sliced
1 1/2 cup fresh greens (baby arugula and/or baby spinach)
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
Thinly slice the fennel and apple (a mandoline slicer works really well)
Add the fresh greens
In a separate bowl whisk lemon juice, oil, and salt together.
Toss with salad.
Optional: toast walnuts for garnish (Bake at 375F for 7-8 minutes)
