Fennel & Apple Salad with Lemon Vinagrette

Fennel is loaded with vitamin C, fiber and potassium and is great for your liver. It is a very new vegetable to me but I first I was a little close minded. I was told it had a strong licorice flavor and I am not a fan of licorice. This is the second dish I have made with fennel and I have to say I like it a lot! The licorice flavor is not as bad as I thought it would be so I totally suggest giving it a try!
This first fennel dish I made was on a pizza with mushrooms and caramelized onions... YUM! Tonight I decide to eat it raw with a salad and I am so excited about this recipe. It is such a delicious combination of flavors. 

Makes 4 small salads
1 apple, sliced
1/2 cup cranberries
1/2 cucumber, sliced
1/2 bulb of fennel, shaved
4 cups mixed greens

Mix ingredients below in a small bowl.
1/3 cup lemon juice
1 tbs olive oil
3 tbs red wine vinegar
1 small shallot, diced

Toss the apple, cranberries, fennel and cucumber
 in the dressing. Top the mixed greens with the mixture making sure to scoop some of the dressing as well.
