Rainy days in the middle of winter are both a relief and a disappointment for me. Snow is certainly more beautiful, but with all the shoveling required and wet clothes my kids bring into the house, it is more of a hassle. On this rainy late January day, I invited my friend Suzy over for an impromptu lunch. With little inclination to leave the house, I felt inclined to use what I had on hand in the fridge to create a few salads. With her help, we shaved and sliced two very tasty salads which I believe are worthy of sharing with you. It’s a good lesson that even the oldest veggies buried in the fridge can often be used and transformed into something which is actually quite good. A good example of the old saying: “Waste not, want not.”
With this winter go-to vegetable, I share our Shaved Fennel Salad. Enjoy!
