Need a starter or side salad to impress with at your next dinner party? Or want to treat yourself or someone else to an interesting, zesty and delicious flavour combo? Then this fennel salad with grapefruit, cucumber and mint is for you. It’s made even more yummy with some chunks of cashew cheese which adds a creamy element to this otherwise very fresh raw salad.

You could of course use another type of vegan cheese if you can’t get a hold of cashew cheese – just get something creamy and mild and you’ll be good. Other than that this salad is very straight forward, takes only about 10-15 minutes to throw together and looks fancy if I may say so myself. I hope you enjoy!
