Fennel is one of my favorite side dishes especially when paired with lemon. This low-carb side dish is perfect for large family dinners, holidays, and to have on hand through the week. I even add this braised fennel to salads! It’s great with any entree but especially good with salmon. Don’t take my word for it, try it yourself!
