VIRTUAL VEGAN POTLUCK!!!! Green and White and Delicious All Over: Spring Salad with Shaved Fennel, Zucchini, Cauliflower, Peas, and Avocodo

IMG_9015I’m so proud to be participating in this years Virtual Vegan Potluck with so many fantastic food bloggers! Over 170 bloggers around the world are uniting to bring the veggie-friendly foodlovers of the world some deIiciousness. I RSVP’d that I’d “bring” a salad to this interweb party, and here’s what I’ve created….a little dish that’s quick to throw together and full of spring veggie goodness and starring my good friend fennel.IMG_9011What you need:

1 bulb fennel, THINLY sliced

1 zucchini, thinly sliced (yes, this is a trend…when in doubt, slice even thinner)

1/2 head cauliflower, thinly sliced

1 bunch asparagus, lightly steamed and chopped

1.5 avocados, thinly sliced

1 cup snap peas, chopped

1 head green romaine lettuce, roughly chopped

3 Tbsp good-quality olive oil

Juice of 2 lemons

Salt and pepper to tasteIMG_9012Start by very gently steaming your asparagus so that it remains crisp, but turns bright, beautiful green.IMG_9013

After that, slice and chop your way to vegetable perfection and toss it all in a bowl.IMG_9016Add lemon juice and olive oil to your salad bowl, toss so that everything is lightly coated. The dressing should be SUPER light to show-off all them veggies in their glory, but you could also add a little whole grain mustard to kick it up a notch. Salt and pepper to taste, and bam! You have a beautiful green salad for your potluck and your belly!IMG_9019Just look how happy this salad made Lori of Crown Hill Day by Day. (I won’t lie, the joy was also due to some incredibly fuzzy socks).

Happy potlucking friends!

    • It’s funny how comfy socks, vegetables, and happiness seem to always go together around here. πŸ™‚ Thanks for looking and hope you enjoy it!

  2. Thank you! You guys and this whole potluck are all awesome! πŸ™‚ Unfortunately, the pic is not of me, but of my awesome and fuzzy-socked friend, Lori. She was good enough to be one of my salad guinea pigs. I will pass on all the compliments though! πŸ™‚

  3. Yum. I feel healthier already just from looking at your salad. I am with you with the light dressing so the vegetables shine! Thank goodness for lemons. I seriously don’t know what I would do without them!

  4. Great salad. I have never used fennel in a salad (sad huh?), but I am definitely going to include THINLY sliced fennel as soon as it is in season again. I like the idea of adding some whole grain mustard as well – one of my favourite dressings. Thanks for the lovely, healthy salad idea.

    • Oh I hope you enjoy it! Once you’ve entered the land of salads with fennel, man oh man is it hard to go back. Thanks for stopping by! πŸ™‚

  6. Looks gorgeous – I love fennel salads and I’m crazy for raw zucchini in a salad as well so this is right up my alley. Quite distracted by the odd adds on your site though – one said “sext your way into a museum and call it art”. Slightly off putting! I love this salad though, bookmarked it to try.

    • Hi again, Keely,

      I’m not seeing any adds on the site, but will you send me a screenshot of what you’re seeing? Nasty adds are definitely not my goal. haha

      Thanks for stopping by, and please go ahead and send to a screenshot if you don’t mind to yumfortum1@gmail.com.

      Also, I hope you like the salad! πŸ™‚

  7. Youu really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually something
    that I think I would never understand. It seems too
    compliicated and extremely broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang off it!
