Apple Fennel Salad is so easy and so elegant! This beautiful salad sits happily next to some fish or chicken, but works well as a main dish, too, when you add a protein.Jump to Recipe
I almost feel guilty giving you this recipe. It’s so easy! Simple. I have discovered, though, that simple food is some of the best. You have a chance to savor each flavor inside each bite.
Don’t get me wrong. Girlfriend is all about complex flavor profiles! But it’s ok to simplify. Quiet down a little. Taste the lighter, more delicate flavors in the world.
Two ingredients may be unfamiliar to you. Fennel is a bulb with big green fronds coming out of it, and tastes faintly of anise/licorice. (We’re only using the white part here.) Belgian endive heads look almost like yellow tulip bulbs in the store. Look for them amongst the lettuces.
If you’ve never used these before, I encourage you to branch out. Try new things. This is one of the advantages of a healing diet. Even though we avoid certain food items, we get to expand our food repertoire to include things we’ve never tried.
P.S. If you’re looking for a salad recipe, but you want more boldness, or a heartier texture, try my Southwest Spinach Salad!
