Baby Beet - Tangerine Salad with Fennel Pollen

This post is not a regular one, this is more like celebrating beautiful fall season, I don't remember that we ever had such a warm and quiet fall. I mean, it is the end of November and it is still possible to use the basil from my garden and we all know how much that herb is sensitive to cold weather. Other day while I was making a soup I went to the garden and found a handful of cherry tomatoes. Amazing! 

And, honestly, I enjoyed this fall a lot.

Even my fennel is blossoming right now, due to the late planting, and nice weather too. How lovely is to see greenery in my little urban garden in late November.

My kids enjoy hanging out among their mama's plants as well. On the pictures you can see they like a lot the smell of fennel fronds and flowers.

There are not many opportunities to try fennel pollen, and this salad is perfect for it. All ingredients match wonderfully, you don't even need any dressing, because there is enough juice in pickled beets and tangerines. As you can see, the salad also makes a beautiful display on the plate.

You need:

Pickled baby beets

You can use regular ones, or you can pickle them yourself. However, it is easier to buy them jarred in a Polish store. Btw, this is my favorite way of preparing and consuming beets.

Tangerine, peeled and cut into circles

Fennel fronds and pollen


Place fennel frond over plate, add pickled baby beets and tangerines over it, and then dust everything with fennel pollen. Also, sprinkle the salad with beet juice.
