Apple and Fennel Salad by Finding Frost

Make this into your summer family favourite, the fresh and crisp effect is perfect for a hot day. Think of fennel as a heart health wonder packed with healthy fibre and phytonutrients. Fibre helps lower cholesterol in the blood and is a goodie for heart health. This, with anti-inflammatory parsley and antioxidant-rich apples makes a powerfully healthy salad.
