Roasted Beet and Fennel Salad
Beets are wonderfully serious veggies and roasting intensifies that flavor. The combination of the spiciness of fennel and cumin with the creamy tartness of the feta cheese make this an even more intense salad. Perfect as a side dish for summer meals or one to take to a pot luck, this recipe is also amazingly simple (but your friends will think you worked really hard). Roasted Beet and Fennel Salad
These are the veggies that you probably hated as a kid (I did). Most of us had them out of a can or as pickled beets, however fresh beets are fantastic and nothing like those that have been canned.
Look for fresh beets with the beet greens still attached. The greens should be fresh and crisp, like fresh spinach. The greens are delicious sautéed quickly in just a pat of butter and a touch of maple syrup (see my Collard Greens recipe). They should be cooked as soon as possible because they will wilt rapidly.
