Grapefruit & Fennel Salad
A simple, refreshing salad with bright zesty flavors. Juicy grapefruit and crunchy shaved fennel are arranged overtop a bed of vibrant butter lettuce.
Add thin slivers of red onion, if you like, or slices of avocado. Spoon the fragrant citrus dressing over the top. A light and delicious accompaniment to baked crepes.
