Caramelized Grapefruit Fennel Summer Salad

One of my favorite things about the summer time is the abundance of beautiful, vibrant and sweet fruits. And I'm a lover of fruits in my salad. Fresh, dried, dehydrated, you name it, I love it.

I love the different bursts of flavors and textures a great salad can bring. This salad is one of my favorite summer salads and add in some protein and you've got a great meal! The caramelized grapefruit brings out that extra sweetness in the grapefruit that compliments that sour zing so nicely.
