Mimi’s Low Carb Citrus Salad

This low carb citrus salad is so simple and balanced, making it the perfect option for a quick lunch. The fennel pairs perfectly with the grapefruit, mango, avocado and lime juice. If you’ve never cooked with Fennel, check out my post on Fennel – Enjoy it raw or cooked.

As I mention in my post on fennel, you’ll want to be sure to slice it thinly. I prepared mine using a sharp knife, but a Mandolin is an easy way to ensure you get slices that are thin and consistent.

Add grilled chicken breast or salmon and call it dinner!
