A Refreshing Fennel, Lemon + Walnut Salad
Originally published in MindBodyGreen
A light and fresh salad is the perfect pairing for a warm day. My Fennel Lemon Walnut Salad is a quick and easy recipe that's rich in fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, and antioxidants, and is completely dairy- and gluten-free.
Top it with a lemon and olive oil dressing and enjoy the bright and clean flavors. For a heartier meal, serve it with grilled fish or chicken — it pairs perfectly as a side dish.
