Fennel and Apricot Salad with Green Goddess Pizzas 


This divine fennel and apricot salad recipe was made with love by Debi Morris, local Chicago food blogger extraordinaire, and the legend behind the popular Instagram account Cooking Without a Net. She also happens to be a loyal and long-time HarvesTime customer and supporter, and we are big fans of hers as well! In fact, you may have already seen us share some of her posts on our Instagram stories (Thanks, Debi!). She created this salad recipe specifically to pair with the Goddess Good Foods cauliflower crust pizza. Her delicious fresh fennel and apricot salad completes and balances out the meal by bringing in a bit of greens and freshness, while complementing the pizza perfectly.
