Refreshing Green Juice

This drink—made with cucumber, fennel, celery, and green pepper—is very refreshing.

The lemon makes an appearance here to add some brightness, and I thought this needed just a bit of salt. Without it, the cucumber flavor got lost and the juice tasted flat. A small pinch of salt made a huge difference.
