Apple Fennel Salad Stack - Gluten-free w/ Vegan Option

This time of year, as excited as I am for all the comfort food, the hot meals, soups and stews, pumpkin baked goods and halloween candy – I do find myself missing all the fresh produce of summer. For me, there is nothing as satisfying as a healthy, crisp and light salad made from what is currently in season. I get so much enjoyment out of creating fall and winter salads, where the options are a bit more limited.

This simple and beautiful Apple Fennel Salad Stack is so quick to make and the finished result is so elegant and colorful. If you are vegan, feel free to leave off the cheese on top, it isn’t necessary at all, it just brings another layer of flavor that compliments the apples so well.

I don’t eat cow’s milk dairy, but I was able to find sheep’s milk Roquefort cheese at Trader Joe’s. Regular ‘ol blue cheese would work just fine, too.

I enjoy this Apple Fennel Salad Stack with a knife and fork, cutting wedges into it and getting a little bit of everything in each bite.

This looks like perfection, I love throwing salads into the mix in Fall, a little freshness and crunch to mix up all the warm things. I love how beautiful this is too, it would be so awesome for entertaining because it’s so pretty and impressive looking!!
