Honeyed Apple, Fennel and Goat Cheese Stacked Salad
Number of Servings: 2 - 4
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 cup water
2 Pink Lady apples, cored
½ red onion, peeled
1 small fennel bulb (reserve leaves for garnish)
4 oz goat cheese, softened
2 tbsp honey
In medium bowl, combine lemon juice and water. Slice apples into 1/8 inch thick rings and place in lemon water to prevent browning.
Slice red onion and fennel bulb into 1/8 inch or thinner rounds. Blot dry an apple slice, spread with goat cheese and set on a plate. Top with a slice of fennel and a slice of red onion. Repeat until desired height is achieved, finishing with an apple and goat cheese slice.
In a small glass bowl, microwave honey for 30-40 seconds, until bubbling. Drizzle hot honey over the salad stacks. Garnish with red onion rings and fresh fennel leaves.
**I subbed cream cheese for goat cheese.
