Fennel, Tomatoes and basil Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette
Finally, it is officially fall. While here in Arizona with our temperature close to the triple digits, it is hard to think of hearty fare. This light, healthy and super easy to assemble salad, as a result it will make you come back for seconds over and over. Perfect for a quick lunch at the office, or a light side dish to any fish, poultry or meat.
The fennel needs to be sliced very thin, almost shaved to render the best flavor of anise. The lemon and basil always compliment each other well and therefore bringing out the fresh clean flavor of the basil.
