Candy Apple, Fennel Salad

I found a little forgotten bulb of baby fennel in the fridge from the CSA. The flavor isn't as strong as the large bulbs but it smells amazing. This is the salad it found itself in.

Candy Apple, Fennel Salad

1 small bulb baby fennel, thinly sliced 1 piece of the fronds, chopped up 1/2 an apple, thinly sliced (I made triangle shapes) 1/4 english cucumber, thinly sliced small palmfull of raisins small palmfull of sunflower seeds or cashews


2TB Olive Oil 1TB Rice Vinegar (low sodium) splash of umeboshi vinegar (optional) fresh cracked pepper

Whisk together the dressing, pour over the salad. If it can sit in the fridge for 30 minutes it will be even better. If you don't have rice vinegar use apple cider vinegar and honey or agave. This is a sweet and salty salad like a candy apple dipped in nuts.
