This apple fennel celery salad sounded like it would be so crunchy and refreshing. And I love halved grapes in salad. While it did prove to be crunchy, it wasn't as good as I'd hoped it to be (though was still good enough to share). But it's a nice change for a side salad. And if you're like me and get some fennel in your CSA and have no idea what to do with it, this is a great option especially with the hot weather we're finally having.
How's everyone's long weekend? I've been mostly plugging along with my research paper, and finished a first draft last night. Such a relief! And then I realized I left a book that I need at work to write my other report, so I'm enjoying the unintended day off from report writing. I went for a run, cleaned the bathroom and baked some granola. I love productive mornings! I have plans for more baking later - maybe some muffins or cookies.
