Raw Fennel, Apple, & Radish Salad

Raw Fennel, Apple, & Radish Salad - rawlevance.comCan you believe that it’s the last week of October? This year has gone by so quickly! I mean it really didn’t hit me that it wasn’t summer anymore until I was at the farmers market the other day and all my favorite fall fruits and veggies were out.

Raw Fennel, Apple, & Radish Salad - rawlevance.comI can get so carried away when I’m at the farmers market. I always buy the most random fruits and veggies without any game plan for what I’ll do with them. This week I found myself with a collection of interesting veggies from heirloom cauliflower to sunflower sprouts to radishes to fennel. While I didn’t turn everything into a raw vegan recipe, I am so excited to share my fennel salad recipe.

Sliced Fennel - rawlevance.comFor those of you who aren’t familiar with fennel {no judgement…I only learned about fennel last year when it came in my farm share}, it’s a crunchy, but refreshing veggie that tastes and smells like licorice. It’s packed with nutrients, such as Vitamin B and Vitamin C, and is often used in alternative medicine {yeah it’s that good for you}. Many of the vitamins in fennel are known to promote collagen synthesis which keeps your skin looking young and healthy. Fennel is also known for its anti-inflammatory and antispasmodic properties. I’m no doctor, but isn’t it so cool that we can help alleviate all our aches and pains through the food we eat?!?! So on that note, get excited to do your body and tastebuds a favor with this recipe!
