Fennel Salad with Peaches - Easy & Healthy

I was so happy to discover the perfect marriage of fennel and peaches not long ago. While attending BreyerFest at the Kentucky Horse Park, we splurged on a restaurant in Midway called Heirloom. The little town itself is a step back in time. Midway was originally built around the railroad tracks. Like many old-time towns, the railroad was the lifeblood of the town. Beautiful architecture in the way of old buildings saddles either side of the railroad tracks. These are now vibrant stores, galleries and restaurants.

After the server’s recommendation I went with the pork chops. While the pork chops were magnificent, it was the fennel peach slaw that stole my heart. Surprisingly I had never thought to pair fennel and peaches together. One bite and I was instantly in love. The fennel salad with peaches was tossed together with a light citrus dressing. As a result, the fennel salad was refreshing and crisp. Consequently I knew I had to make it at home.

Gluten Free Fennel Salad with Peaches

To recreate the recipe at home I first started with shaving the fresh fennel on a mandolin. It is extremely important that the fennel is very thinly sliced. The only way to achieve shavings of fennel is with a mandolin. Second I added fresh peaches. While Georgia peach season has taken a serious hit from the weather, I was able to find two beautifully ripe peaches. Third my goal was to keep the dressing very light. In this regard, I simply used lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper. It really is that easy to make this fennel salad with peaches.
