Some of you have asked me for more salad recipes so here you go: Fennel and Grapefruit salad! This is a really easy but tasty traditional Italian salad. Very fresh and citrusy, and with fennels, so much in season right now. I hope you enjoy it.

Mamma Flora’s Tip: If you don’t prefer the bitterness of the grapefruit, use instead blood oranges. Try to add some balsamico vinegar for extra richness. 

Ingredients:

  • 2 fennels
  • 1 Pink grapefruit
  • A handful of black olives
  • A handful of walnuts
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and pepper

Method:

  • Slice the fennel in thin slices
  • Peel the grapefruit and cut a half in small cubes, slice the rest for decoration
  • Add the olives and the walnuts and dress with extra virgin olive oil, salt and pepper
  • Mix together and enjoy!
