Fennel and Orange Salad

This simple salad features fresh, seasonal oranges and thinly sliced fennel that is sure to impress at your next dinner party.

Oranges are rich in vitamin C, an antioxidant that helps to protect against free radicals. Vitamin C may also promote gut health by enhancing the integrity of the gut lining, preventing disease and adding more bacterial diversity to the microbiome.

Fennel has also been shown to support gut health by lowering inflammation in the bowels and even minimizing bacteria that may lead to excess gas. It is a prebiotic food, meaning it feeds the beneficial bacteria in the gut and supports a balanced microbiome.
