Spinach and Fennel Salad

spinach fennel salad

I have been craving vegetables lately (finally, a healthy pregnancy craving) so I randomly bought some fennel at the grocery store the other day. I had a lot of spinach at home so I googled fennel with spinach and found this simple salad. It was perfect for a light lunch.

Ingredients:
baby spinach leaves
1 fennel bulb
some chopped pecans or walnuts (I used both)
1/4 cup olive oil
1/3 cup red wine vinegar
2 teaspoons spicy brown mustard
2 cloves garlic, crushed
2 teaspoons honey
salt and pepper

Instructions:
Remove thick stalks from spinach and tear leaves into salad bowl.

Slice fennel bulb and add with nuts to the bowl.

Put olive oil and seasonings in a jar with a tight-fitting lid, shake well to blend.

Just before serving, pour the dressing over the salad and toss well to coat.
