More Real Food Recipes.....

As I mentioned yesterday, I'll be publishing recipes from our amazing Holiday Meetup throughout this week. Hopefully, you'll gain some fresh inspiration for new and healthy dishes you might enjoy introducing into your family's holiday meals and celebrations. Today and tomorrow I'll share starters and side dishes, then on Thursday and Friday I'll finish with the raw dessert recipe round up!!
Orange Fennel Salad

2 lbs. of fennel bulbs
3 -4 oranges peeled & sectioned
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 lemons, freshly juiced
handful of pomegranate seeds
Celtic sea salt, to taste
1/4 tsp. freshly cracked pepper
2 oz. arugula or spinach

Cut the fronds from the fennel bulbs and place in a food processor, pulsing until roughly chopped. Transfer into a medium bowl and add the orange segments. Whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, salt & pepper and toss into the fennel and orange mixture. Serve over your bed of greens.Cranberry Relish

1 bag fresh or frozen cranberries
zest of one orange
the inside of one orange, peeled and divided into segments

Place the cranberries, orange pieces, zest & sweetener of choice into a food processor. Process until you reach a chutney/relish type consistency. Put mixture into a pretty serving bowl and stir in blueberries.
