Nectarine & Witlof Salad w Black Beans
Prep time
Total time
A refreshing salad, to which I added the beans for nutritious value. The flower in the picture isn't there just being pretty, it's a fennel flower, and amazingly delicious! So if you have fennel flowering in the garden, sprinkle it over your salads or other dishes :-)
This salad is also oil free, salt free & gluten free, but if you're hungry or just feel like some added healthy fats, add some avocado, either in pieces or mixed with the lemon juice. If you're afraid witlof is too bitter for you, then add raisins or banana, apple or pear - any fruit will do great!
