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!

Dressing

  • 3 Tablespoons of fresh lemon juice

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)
