    Brightly colored fruits and veggies get all of the attention but don’t be fooled, white vegetables are packed in nutrients as well! An excellent source of Vitamin C, fiber and folate, I try to incorporate fennel into our diet on a regular basis. If you’ve never eaten raw fennel, it is crunchy like celery with a delicious, subtle licorice flavor.

    Roasted Beets

    After making a big batch of my favorite Roasted Beets with Orange and Rosemary recently, I decided to create a simple fennel and orange slaw to serve alongside. The crisp fennel and juicy orange segments are a match made in heaven for roasted beets.
    Between Easter and Passover, my family will be hosting quite a few events in the coming weeks! Fennel slaws are ideal for entertaining because they don’t wilt the minute you dress them like a lettuce-based salad.

    In fact, I intentionally toss the slaw in the vinaigrette 10-20 minutes before I plan to serve it so that the dressing can begin to penetrate the fennel. To save even more time on the day of a party, roasted beets can be prepared up to 3 days in advance.

    Your fork is waiting.

    1. I’ve tried beets once a longgggg time ago and hated them but I need to try them again now that I’m “grown up!” Salads are my favorite thing to bring to a party!

    2. I like mini food , it small and less likely I will spill on myself and make a if mess. Like sliders, tacos, brusutta, brownies on bite, truffles. Thanks
