Apple and Fennel Salad with a Lemon Vinaigrette

A light and fresh summer time salad that will compliment any barbecue or regular weekday menu. Alright so I will be the first to admit that salads were never my food of choice.

I confess…in the last 3 weeks I’ve exercised all but 5 times. I confess…I need to do better! OK so maybe I exaggerated and sin is a bit of a stretch. But I get that feeling I’m doing something oh so wrong! (well after I’ve finished eating anyway). But not to worry, I’m about to make a 180 and take a step in the right direction.
