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.

You only need a bit of white balsamic vinegar for the dressing, which is a yummy addition, and just makes this dish shine.
