Thanks for asking.

Fennel has a light anise flavor that just tastes so darn fresh. Add crisp sweet apple and sharp radish. Toss with a tart, buttery lemon vinaigrette warmed with floral coriander. It’s a light start to a heavy meal. A bright compliment to a richly sauced main of chicken or pork. It’s an indulgent brunch paired with farm-fresh eggs and  good bread spread with rich butter.

Fennel and Apple Salad

Dress this salad lightly to keep the flavors balanced.

For salad:

  • 1 fennel bulb, cored and thinly sliced
  • 1 apple, julienned
  • 3-4 radishes, julienned
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley

For dressing:

  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 1/2 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp ground coriander
  • Olive oil – the good stuff!


  • Mix together shallot, lemon juice, coriander and mustard. Add salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.
  • Toss fennel, apple, radishes and parsley in a large bowl.
  • In a steady stream, whisk olive oil into the lemon juice, shallot mixture.
  • Lightly dress the salad to taste. Add an extra squeeze of lemon juice or pinch of salt if needed.
