Arugula, Fennel & Green Apple Salad

This is one of the delicious dishes we enjoyed at The Bentwood Inn in Jackson Hole, Wyoming during our recent visit. The unique combination of green apples, shaved fennel and arugula is so fun and fresh! We added a little crumbled goat cheese, just because we love goat cheese, and plus it complemented the salad flavors so well. But, no cheese or blue cheese would also be wonderful with this salad. Melissa (the chef at The Bentwood, served it with sherry-honey vinaigrette at the inn, but we decided to toss it in our champagne dressing and loved the results! This is an easy salad to make with pre-washed arugula and then all you have to do is shave the fennel and the apples and make the dressing! You can use a mandoline slicer to shave the fennel and thinly slice the apples, but you can also use a potato peeler for the fennel and a sharp knife for the apple. You just want to get both of these as thin as possible!
