This recipe has become one my favorite lunches!  Tossed together with kale, avocado, cucumbers and hemp hearts, it makes a delicious big green salad.  This fennel-apple mixture creates some good juices, so there’s no need to add any dressing to the salad.

Apple cider vinegar has the tendency to remind me of one of my biggest culinary mistakes (absent-mindedly using apple cider vinegar (ACV) instead of apple cider (AC) in a brown sugar apple cheesecake…yuck!) but in this savory recipe, it works well with all of the flavors.
