fennel & orange salad

fennel & orange salad

I often forget about this simple, side salad. Even I need to remind myself of quick and easy ways to change up a meal (I sometimes scroll my instagram page for reminders!). There is nothing to this salad, just a great combination of some fresh, tasty ingredients – great for lunch or dinner. 

I adore fennel’s black licorice taste combined with the bursts of citrus and the chewy, tartness of the dried cranberries. Apple cider vinegar is a fantastic compliment and has endless health benefits (relieves sinus pressure and infection, relieves migraines; prevents flu, balances pH, to name a few). 

Be sure to check the ingredients label for the dried cranberries. They can be high in sugar and preservatives. Choose only fruit sweetened cranberries, if you can.
