Fennel-Apple Salad With Walnuts

Fennel-Apple Salad With Walnuts

A bright and tangy salad cuts the heaviness of the typical Thanksgiving meal. This one, with fennel, celery, apples and toasted walnuts, is all crunch, which the carb-heavy meal can generally use more of. You can make the dressing a day ahead and store it in the fridge, but don't dress the salad until an hour before serving.
