Apple Fennel Salad

Count to two and chop. That’s all you need to do and you’ve got a great in-season salad. I initially made this for a friend’s pig roast and the crispness of the apple and fennel paired beautifully with the succulent pork. Since then it’s been a go-two (see what I did there?) side dish for fall gatherings. So grab two of each ingredient, chop ’em up, and don’t forget to press play for a two-tally two-bular (get it? huh? huh?) playlist.
