Fennel Apple Salad Recipe

Fennel Apple Salad
Serves 4
If you ate too much chocolate, ham, turkey, or food in general over the Easter long weekend, then make this salad. Nice and light, this salad is simple to make and is also delicious. It doesn't even need a dressing. Even better, fennel will help relieve intestinal spasms or cramps, helps relieve gas, tones and strengthens the stomach, and soothes pain. Bonus points for fennel is that it's high in vitamin C, fiber, folic acid, magnesium, iron, and calcium; it helps with uncomfortable menopausal symptoms; it is anti-inflammatory; and it may help prevent cancer. Fennel has a distinct flavour--lightly sweet anise--that I have found even veggie-haters like. Even my licorice-disliking family members love this salad. It's suitable for those that are vegan, gluten-free, and dairy-free.

  1. 1 fennel root bulb, thinly sliced
  2. 2 apples, unpeeled, cored, and thinly sliced
  3. 1 orange, juiced
  4. 1-2 tablespoon dried cranberries, raisins, or golden berries
  5. 1-3 tablespoon pine nuts or sunflower seeds
  1. The original recipe I found used dried cranberries and pine nuts only as garnish, but I like mixing them all together and choosing more dried small fruit and small nuts or seeds in larger amounts.
