Here are a couple of easy salad ideas. Have you ever tried making an apple salad with fennel and walnuts? Super easy!! Chop apples and fennel into bite size pieces add lemon juice and umeboshi vinegar, add walnut pieces, toss and serve. Variation, add arugula or spinach!!
Don’t forget pomegranates and persimmons in your dinner salad for a festive splash of color.
