We chose to include this recipe, as you can find celery, apples, and fennel at the winter markets. Most of you are familiar with apples and celery, but many have never cooked with fennel. Fennel is a really unique vegetable. It’s texture is similar to celery, though less stringy, and it has a slight anise (licorice) flavor. This salad is quick, easy, and fresh. Pick up some fennel at the market and give it a try!


  • 1 apple
  • 3 stalks of celery
  • 1 small fennel bulb (with fronds)
  • 1.5 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1.5 teaspoons mayo
  • 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  • salt & pepper, to taste


  • Toasted pecans


Using a mandoline (or a sharp knife), thinly shave the fennel bulb and celery stalks (reserve the fennel fronds for the dressing). With a paring knife, cut the apple into thin matchsticks. Gently toss the apple, celery, and fennel together in a bowl.

Mince the fennel fronds until you have roughly 1 tablespoon. Stir together the olive oil, mayo, vinegar, minced fennel fronds, salt, and pepper. Taste, and adjust the portions if necessary.

Gently toss the salad with the dressing, just to coat. Serve at room temperature. Garnish with fennel fronds and toasted pecans.

Enjoy and see ya at the Market!
