Roasted Beet and Fennel Salad with Heirloom Tomatoes

21 Sep

I have already made a blog entry for a roasted beet and apple salad.  I took that samn concept and decided to try roasting the fennel as well.  Instead of using apples, I used the gorgeous heirloom tomatoes that were in my CSA box.

I used the same marinade for the beets and fennel that I used for my other beet salad.  You can find that here.

First, let me comment on these beets.  They are of the Chioggia variety and look like a candy cane when you cut into them.

These are awesome and the flavor isn’t as intense as a regular beet.

Roasting the fennel mellowed out the licorice flavor fennel has.  The warm beets and fennel coupled with the cool tomatoes and lettuce was awesome.

I will be making this again.
