Apple Fennel Salad

by | Salads | 3 comments

This is the great salad I hinted at last week on Instagram.  I didn’t post it last week because I got so excited about the Milieu contest and wanted you to know.  This is good though and worth the wait…

A few years a go I had an Apple Fennel salad at a restaurant.  I’d never really had fennel and, frankly, I can’t stand licorice so I always shied away.  Boy, was I missing out!  It didn’t taste like licorice at all.  Just a great texture and crunch with a hint of a sharp but sweet flavor.  A refreshing salad ingredient.  Over the years I have recreated it at home in different variations.

Apple Fennel Salad
 
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Ingredients
  • 2 medium fennel bulbs, sliced paper thin
  • 2 Honeycrisp or Granny Smith apples, sliced paper thin
  • 1 shallot, diced
  • 1 tbs maple syrup
  • 3 tbs olive oil
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 4 cups baby arugula
Instructions
  1. Place sliced fennel, sliced apples and arugula in a large bowl and toss.
  2. Whisk together maple syrup, olive oil, lemon juice.
  3. Stir in shallots.
  4. Pour over salad and toss again.
  5. Serve.

The easiest way to cut fennel is to cut the bottom 1/4″ off, then cut it in half from top to bottom.  Lay the flat side on the cutting board and slice away!  (Sorry, I didn’t get photos…it was dinner time!) I cut my apples the same way, flat side on the cutting board and slice.

I hope you enjoy it!  Let me know what you think and if you use fennel in other ways.
