Strawberry, Nectarine, and Fennel Salad

Strawberry, Nectarine, and Fennel Salad

We had a lot of strawberries and apricots in our box today. The big surprise was that there was no fennel. How can I make a salad without my trusty fennel?

I have become accustomed to those two fennel bulbs that have resided in my farm box for weeks now.

What is a girl to do?

I caved in and bought some fennel at Trader Joe’s 🙂 . I envisioned this fennel working well with the fruits and I had to try it out for fun. I used a lightly fruity dressing to play up the fruits in this salad.

The lime in the dressing really plays up to the fruits and fennel, making it a great salad for any occasion. If you can’t find key limes in your store, that is okay. Substitute the juice from one regular sized lime instead.

The result? Delicious.

If you can understand and relate to my fennel addiction, here are two more recipes with fennel:
