This raw vegan fennel salad recipe is light and crisp as well as very filling. The base of the salad is arugula, which of course has a ton of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants to keep your immune system strong. Did you know that arugula is also high in folic acid? That’s right all your pregnant moms-to-be…this salad would be wonderful for you and your baby while pregnant. The other all-star in this recipe is fennel, which acts as an excellent source of plant-based iron (aka non-heme iron). Pair it with a vitamin-c rich fruits to increase your iron absorption by up to 30%! You only need a bit of white balsamic vinegar for the dressing, which is a yummy addition, and just makes this dish shine.
