Orange Fennel Salad – paleo & vegan

orange fennel salad

Salads are for Summer, right? Well, I am not very keen on eating cold and raw veggies when it is cold and dark outside. Actually, I’m craving soups, one pot dishes and other warming dishes at this time of the year.

But as I am a huge veggie lover, I recently enjoy making warm veggie salads. I love combing veggies and fruit, being creative with spices and different dressings.

This recipe is a perfect light detox side salad that nourishes your body, mind and soul. The subtle sweetness of fennel goes perfectly along with the orange and the sweet and warming spices in the dressing. Turmeric* helps you to stay healthy during holiday season and boosts your immune system! And don’t forget to use an apple cider vinegar* that still contains the mother for all the health benefits.

Depending on your diet, ad a good source of protein and probably some more fat to this salad. I love combining it with either salmon or chicken and a fried egg!
