Bears. Beets. Battlestar Gallactica.

 

Dwight Schrute would approve of this salad. Actually, it’s probably a little too high maintenance for him (but it’s really easy, I promise!). This winter salad features beets, citrus, fennel and onions — might not sound like a winning combination, but let yourself be surprised.  The contrast in textures, flavours and colours make this something special.

Blood oranges star alongside beets in this Moroccan inspired salad.

This recipe from Bon Appetit is easy to follow and certainly adaptable to whatever salad ingredients you have on hand.  I also tried the salad with a little goat cheese crumbled on top…delicious. By chopping the fennel and the onion super finely you will create a work of art when you plate your salad; I was slightly less patient, but it will still taste great no matter how it’s thrown together. Enjoy! http://www.bonappetit.com/recipes/2012/01/blood-orange-beet-and-fennel-salad

And of course, the scene that made “Bears. Beets. Battlestar Gallactica.” a common saying in my household:
