Apple and Fennel Salad

This salad serves as almost a “bridge” between the Summer and Winter worlds – apples, greens and fennel tied together with some crunchy walnut and pumpkin seed toppings. Very simple and nourishing, this salad is an easy go-to for a quick lunch or dinner. I’m always a fan of salads I can throw together with ingredients I already have at home.
