fennel and beet salad

10.21.2013



I feel so lucky that we have a farmer's market right outside our front down every Sunday. I haven't had to go to the supermarket to buy produce for a few weeks now. It really offers everything we need. I love supporting local farms. The kale, beets, fennel, and lavender honey goat cheese were all bought from the Old Pasadena Farmer's Market.
