  • Place beets in a 9-inch baking pan, add water and cover with foil. Roast until the beets can be easily pierced with a fork, 1 to 1 1/4 hours. Set aside, uncovered, until cool enough to handle, about 30 minutes. Peel and refrigerate until cold, about 30 minutes.

  • Grind fennel seeds in a clean spice grinder or with a mortar and pestle. Transfer to a mini food processor and add vinegar, lemon juice, mustard, garlic, honey, salt and pepper. Process until smooth. With the motor running, gradually add canola and olive oils.

  • Cut the beets to uniform size, halving the smaller ones and quartering the larger ones; place in a medium bowl. Add the vinaigrette and toss to coat. Add berries and mozzarella; toss to coat. Serve topped with radishes and microgreens, if desired.

Tips

To make ahead: Refrigerate beets (Steps 1-2) and dressing (Step 3) for up to 1 day.

Equipment: Spice grinder or mortar and pestle

I didn't see how the cheese fit into this other than to diffuse the amount of flavor in one place. So, I omitted the cheese and added lettuce. I also used red and golden beets. I liked this salad, the dressing made it interesting. I will make again. Read More
