Grapefruit and Fennel Salad

This is a super easy and refreshing salad for hot summer days. The fennel and cucumber came from our CSA basket while the mint came from our patio herbs.

Grapefruit and Fennel Salad
1 fennel bulb
2 grapefruit
1/2 cucumber
Handful of fresh mint
1 Tbsp olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste

Slice the fennel thinly using a mandoline if you have one. I chopped some of the tops to add to the salad but this isn't neccesary.

Zest grapefruits then peel and segment each one. Squeeze out the remaining juice from the left over pulp and reserve the liquid.

Chop cucumber and mix in a bowl with fennel and grapefruit. Chop mint finely and add to salad. Mix grapefruit juice with olive oil to make a dressing. Pour over salad and add salt and pepper to taste. Finally garnish with grapefruit zest and enjoy.
