Apple and Fennel Salad

Apples, Apples, Apples!!  This dish is inspired by a salad I had when I visited a local hot springs spa.  It’s fresh and bright and bursting with flavors!


What you need:

  • 3 large apples, peeled and cut into bite sized chunks
  • 1 cup of chopped fennel bulb  20150913_142631_resized
  • ¼ cup of chopped fennel leaves  20150913_143056_resized
  • ½ cup dried cranberries and walnuts 20150913_143637_resized


  • 3 Tablespoons of fresh lemon juice
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon of pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon honey


How to Do it:


Place all of the salad ingredients in a large mixing bowl.


Using a wire whisk, mix the dressing ingredients until they have emulsified, or thickened.


Pour over the apples and mix well.  Cover and refrigerate for at least one hour.  Serve cold. (I garnished with bright nasturtiums, and edible flower with a peppery taste)


Serves 4
