This strawberry fennel salad with Sweet strawberries combined with crispy fennel and fresh green lettuce in a fruity sour rhubarb (currant) dressing for a quick, refreshing dinner or bringing to a potluck /cookout. vegan | glutenfree

The strawberry season is almost over. So let’s enjoy the last seasonal strawberries in this delicious strawberry fennel salad. You can add a bit of arugula to the lettuce and you will get a delicious spicy, nutty taste.

In addition, you can either add the included avocado in the dressing and finely puree or you cut them up and give the avocado over the strawberry fennel salad. If you want to avoid oil in the dressing, then you can easily replace the oil with the avocado. Whether you make the half avocado or the whole in the dressing. It is up to you.

Did I make you curious about the dressing?

The dressing contains:

  • Rhubarb or currants (depending on the season)
  • onion
  • Maple syrup (optional)
  • red wine vinegar
  • mustard
  • good olive oil

If you do not like rhubarb or currants, of course you can use other fruits to your liking. Try a slightly sour fruit variety, that gives that something special. I can imagine golden berries will taste great too.

Can you guess what comes in the strawberry fennel salad? Ha, exactly strawberries and fennel. 😉 And some more:

  • Lettuce (arugula, corn salad, lettuce etc.)
  • spring onions
  • avocado

The strawberry fennel salad is made quickly. You will need a few kitchen utensils like a grater, food processor for dressing a hand mixer may also do it. I have not tried it though. Feel free to write me down in the comments on how it worked if you use a hand mixer.

Otherwise, the salad is really super easy and quickly prepared during the week.
