Seafood, Fennel, and Lime Salad on Food52

You can almost smell the Mediterranean in this salad, with its fresh seafood, herbs, garlic, and sumac. The best way to serve it is as part of a mezze selection, with rustic white bread to soak up the juices.

This is one of our absolute favourite salads to have in the summertime, or when we want a bit of luxury in the winter. Thanks for putting it up here!
