Vegan Winter Salad

Fennel and Apple Salad with Grapefruit Vinaigrette
Very simple yet elegant winter salad with floral and crunchy fennel root and sweet golden delicious apples. I loved the contrast of grapefruit with sweet apples. This is a perfect diet salad, fibrous but without heavy dousing of dressings. I enjoy such salads for lunch, especially after devouring rich holiday foods and heavy leftovers during winters.
