{in my kitchen} fennel + smoked salmon

I took a long weekend + went down to Florida for some quality time with my grandparents this past week.  While the time I spent with them is irreplaceable, I am happy to leave their daily buffet diet behind.

I had some smoked salmon in the fridge that I wanted to use + remembered a Martha Stewart recipe that I came across that I have been wanting to try, and in 5 minutes I was able to tiredly whip up a fennel + lemon zest salad to top it.  It was just what a needed - cool, flavorful + extremely fresh.  This will definitely be repeated weekly in the summer months coming up.
