Fennel, Apple, Celery Salad with Cilantro and Lemon

October 11, 2013
by Shannon Hepburn

I stumbled across this recipe on the Food Network site.  If you’ve got an abundance of fall apples staring at you, this is a nice and unexpected way to use some of them.  I love the fennel & apple combo, then the kick of cilantro makes me think of summer – especially when the temperature rises so high in mid-October.  Add some protein to this and make it dinner.  You can add a creamy taste by whisking in a spoonful of yogurt or mayo to the vinaigrette.  Likewise, if the vinaigrette seems too lemony for your palate, substitute some of the lemon juice for a vinegar of your choice.
