Such a devine mix! Fennel is in season right now and is one of my favourite vegetables - and so versatile! What makes fennel’s properties so wonderful is that it is a great Prebiotic, which means it helps to feed the good Probiotic bacteria …helping to feed the good guys and restore balance and health in the Microbiome. Just as we need to eat, so do Probiotics!
A decent side salad for 4
2-3 medium sized fennels
3 grapefruits (my favourite) or oranges or a combination of both
Coconut sugar to taste
1/2 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
3 TBSP flat leaf parsley
Using a Mandolin, slice fennel into very fine slices
De-seed and chop the grapefruit or oranges into segments and slices. Combine and include the juice.
Put all in a serving bowl and cover with the EVOO and parsley. Add in avocado slices, or mint, walnuts ….
Such a simple salad, great with salmon, white fish, steak, a quick lunch salad…
