Fennel, Apple, Celery Salad

I know veggies in the winter can be a depressing endeavor... but I have a easy, crisp, citrus salad that will put the zip back into your winter menu. This salad is brought to you by the fantastic kitchen gadget the mandolin, if you don' t have one, a knife can do the work, but the mandolin does make it very easy, just be careful and use the guard to protect your finger tips. 

What you need: 

1 small fennel bulb
3 celery stalks
1 small apple
2 Tablespoons of regular olive oil
1 Tablespoon of citrus olive oil (or lemon juice)
1 Tablespoon of tarragon vinegar (apple cider vinegar and some fresh tarragon chopped)
salt and pepper

What you do: 

1. Thinly slice your fennel and celery and lay on a large platter. 
2. Flip the cutter on your mandolin and finely julian the apple and add to the platter. 
3. In a small jar add the oils, vinegar, salt and pepper. Shake vigoursly, and pour over your salad. Toss with your hands. 
4. Enjoy with gusto and crunch. 

As always, many blessings, much love and happy winter!
