With the cold weather hitting Houston, it's easy to forget that the local farmers markets still provide an abundance of seasonal vegetables. Soups are a popular choice in every kitchen with our temperatures hitting record lows. Kale, carrots and broccoli are in season at the farmers markets, and make very healthy additions to any soup. However, the tendency towards soups and stews this time of year can often create a craving for something fresh and crunchy. Seasonal fennel satisfies that craving for crunch with a crisp, hydrating salad high in vitamin A, and calcium. Other seasonal selections of Meyer lemons and fresh dill create a tangy dressing to complete this refreshing winter salad of fennel with Meyer lemon and dill dressing. Follow the list attached for a step by step instruction for making fennel salad with Meyer lemon dill dressing.
