IMG_6093

This crisp salad is full of well-balanced and delicate summer flavours. Plus, it contains fennel, which is a veg of many benefits.Β It is a source of vitamin C, fiber, folate and potassium and is known to be great for digestion. More specifically, it can help soothe bloating, gas and acid reflux.

I will definitely be making this over and over and over again this season! πŸ™‚ As far as salads go, this one is as simple and delicious as it gets.
