Citrus and Fennel Salad

Southern Kitchen
Fennel Grapefruit Salad

About the recipe

This bright, refreshing salad is a wonderful pairing with grilled or roasted seafood. Removing the bitter white pith from the citrus segments removes any unwanted fibrous textures from the salad. If you’re sensitive to spice, stop slicing the jalapeño before you reach the seeds or more fiery part of the membrane of the chile, or just omit the pepper altogether.
