Apple and Fennel Salad with White Balsamic Vinaigrette

Apple and Fennel Salad

1 1/2 pounds Granny Smith apples (about 3-4)
2  fennel bulbs 
1 cup golden raisins
1/2 cup celery, chopped or sliced thin

Slice apples into quarters, remove seeds. Slice thinly and place in a large mixing bowl. Thinly slice fennel crosswise and chop celery and add to apples. Stir in raisins, set aside.

White Balsamic Vinaigrette 

2 teaspoons lemon juice
1/4 cup white sugar 
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

In a separate bowl combine balsamic vinegar and lemon juice and whisk until well combined.  Slowly whisk in olive oil until smooth. Whisk in sugar and season to taste with salt and pepper. 

Put apple mixture in a gallon-sized Ziploc bag, pour in vinaigrette and seal tightly. Lay the bag flat in a baking dish and Refrigerate for 1-2 hours, turning Ziploc bag after a half hour or so to ensure vinaigrette gets distributed evenly.  

Serve salad cold and garnish with fennel leaves.
