Orange, Golden Beet, and Fennel Salad

Orange, Golden Beet, and Fennel Salad

Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is knowing that a tomato doesn’t belong in a fruit salad.”  said Miles Kington. And looking at all the ingredients — golden beet, fennel, orange, cranberry — I don’t really know if today’s salad is still a vegetable or a fruit salad, but I’m sure there isn’t any tomato in it because it’s a salad full of fall and winter produces. Warm soups or hearty casseroles are obvious comfort food options when it’s cold outside like these days, but a big bowl of fresh, crisp vegetables and sweet fruit can be reassuring too. Tart, refreshing, and lovely with a drizzle of olive oil and sea salt, this colorful salad makes the perfect lunch to bring the good mood back!
