Are you one of those people that tries new foods & flavors or do you stick to the same boring foods day in and day out? I used to be a plain Jane but I have expanded my taste buds and I have Marc to thank for that.
When we first met, the closest I got to eating seafood was fish sticks. Now I will eat any type of fish and even mussels and stuffed clams.
Growing up I hated mushrooms, now I love them! You can literally make me stuffed mushrooms any day and I will eat them. Brussel Sprouts, yuck… I used to think they were so bitter. Now I would eat them as a snack if you put them in front of me! The first time I had salmon I literally gagged and now it is has become a weekly dinner staple in our house.
Sometimes it takes me a few tries to like something but I am happy to try most foods a second time around.
Growing up I always knew what Fennel was but the licorice taste was just gross to me. This was until Marc threw together this lovely side dish using fennel & apples which compliment each other so well in this dish. I couldn’t put my fork down!!! I asked him to make it again and again, apparently I’ve asked so much that now when Fennel is on sale he will buy it make the salad because he knows how much I love it.
This past weekend I came home to Marc making it and I decided it was time to share these flavors with you!
If you love the tartness of a granny smith apple and the tang from lemon juice I promise you will think of Fennel in a different way!
APPLE & FENNEL SALAD
1 Head Fennel
1 Granny Smith Apple
2 tsp Olive Oil
1/2 lemon, juiced
1/4 tsp Thyme
Salt & Pepper
- Slice Fennel & Apple into matchstick slices.
- Add Lemon juice, Olive oil, Thyme, Salt & Pepper. Toss well!
I may or may not have eaten right out of the bowl while Marc was making it, and then I think I had 2 servings after. The leftovers didn’t even last long enough for me to write this post, but he will make it again
