Apple, Fennel & Walnut Salad with Apple Cider Vinaigrette

Apple, Fennel & Walnut Salad with Apple Cider Vinaigrette

Thinly sliced fresh raw fennel, grated green apple, and walnuts served with an apple cider vinaigrette: what a refreshing crunchy and delicious combination… and so simple too!

Salad Ingredients:

1 large fennel bulb, rinsed and sliced thinly*

1 green apple, skin on, rinsed and grated coarsely

¼ cup chopped walnuts


¼ tsp dijon mustard

2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar

1 Tbsp organic apple cider

3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

1/8 tsp salt


Place all the vinaigrette ingredients in a medium salad bowl and whisk briskly. Place the thinly sliced fennel, grated apple and chopped walnuts on top of the vinaigrette and toss to coat well. Enjoy!

*I like to use a mandoline but you can also use a food processor equipped with a top slicing blade to slice finely.
