Most delicious fennel beet salad

While trying to get through my CSA produce last week I searched for a fennel salad recipe online. Usually I just slice it thinly and serve it raw with some olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper. One of the first hits I got was for this fennel beet salad. I decided to kill two birds with one stone (fennel and beets) and make it. I had very low expectations but it was EXCELLENT! Really tangy and delicious. I won't post the recipe here but I'll send you over to the website. The only change I made was that I didn't serve it over greens because I didn't have any. I would probably serve it without greens again. It was so simple and easy and yummy. And it used up my beets-- I like beets but they are such a pain to cook that I usually don't bother with them. Now I'm hoping to get some more fennel AND beets in my CSA box. Enjoy!

We made a tomato fennel salad and thought it was just okay. Sounds like you had much better luck. Would you like our beets? I'll even bring them to you if you want them. I love the whole CSA thing, but I think next year we will start our own large garden instead. I want what I want- not beets, fennel, and kohlrabi. Blech!

Hey Holly, I will definitely take your beets. And fennel too if you have it. I can trade some delicious corn, boring cabbage and a bunch of zucchini. I'm sure you have all those things.
