Fennel Salad with Roasted Beets and Shaved Asparagus - An amazing fennel salad with bright flavors and earthy olive oil drizzled over the top.
Servings: 6

Ingredients

  • 2 bunches beets (I used gold and red)

  • 4 ounces Asiago cheese
  • 1 cup toasted walnuts, broken into pieces
  • 1/2 lemon
  • Olive oil

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

  8. And sure, I can pin it too :)

  9. This olive oil would be for drizzling only! Soup, salad, pizza.

  59. I’d love to make a vinaigrette!

  60. Just heard of your blog via twitter :) Love your website! And I’m also following you on pinterest, twitter and facebook. If I won, I’d make pesto…BUCKETS AND BUCKETS OF PESTO! :D Lol, okay, maybe not buckets, but for salads (caprese) pasta, some cooking and even my skin and hair if it’s that awesome (I’m a big fan of fruit, veggie and nut oils for skin and hair…awesome moisturizers).

  61. i would use this olive oil in one of my many new vegan recipes OR for roasting veggies OR for dipping fresh baked bread OR to drizzle on a salad, like the one you made! :)

  64. I would love to dip sourdough bread in the oil

  65. Mmmm beets AND fennel. Yum!! I think I would drizzle this olive oil over some vanilla ice cream with a small sprinkling of fleur de sel.

  66. Fresh bread, dipped in the olive oil and balsamic

  67. Wow what a great treasure that olive oil is. I would love to drizzle on tomatoes and dip some grilled garlic bread into it
    Thanks

  68. The olive oil looks lovely. I like seeing food products that look, smell, taste like they’re supposed to and carry the color they were intended to. My Honey is a breakfast burrito fanatic. Each day’s potatoes and veggies begin with olive oil.

  69. Facebook: Mtm Hudson

  70. I look forward to drizzling Theros Olive Oil on my caprese salad.

  71. homemade bread with olive oil for dipping.

  72. What would I make with a gallon of Theros Olive Oil?
    That’s 256 delicious tablespoons!
    The real question is what wouldn’t I make with that much Theros Olive Oil?! I can’t wait to cook with and season my brand new cast iron skillet with this nectar of the Gods if I win. As a college student (and budding foodie) my budget is pinched enough as it is. Winning this much TRUE Olive Oil will be what gets me through the pinch of student loan debt.

  73. I would like to pour Theros olive oil over roasted cauliflower with shaved Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese and a sprinkle of crushed red peppers.

  74. I will make a salad with fresh greens, dried cranberries, nuts, and gorgonzola cheese!

  75. I live how you call for ‘fat’ asparagus…I refer to them the same way, the fat ones and the skinny ones. This year is my year to try and like beets, I’m pinning this to help me on my journey.

  76. I know this is going to sound weird, but I love to finish off a fruit salad with “raw” olive oil. The fruitiness of the oil brings out more in the fruit!

  77. I also follow along on Facebook (Lesley Eats)

  79. I’ll be very honest here–I will drink that olive oil straight! It looks fantastic. YUM.

  82. Hello. I found you on Southern Bloggers. I am a new follower! The olive oil sounds wonderful. I would use it it in my Greek salad dressing for sure! Patsy

  83. Wow! I don’t think I’d be able to take the time to make anything. I’d just pour some into a bowl, sprinkle with herbs, and grab some crusty bread for dipping. Dinner is served.

  125. Dip a nice piece of bread in that olive oil. Your salad looks simply gorgeous!

  126. My father–whose last name is Oliveira!– knows something about olives, his family having been in the business for generations. He waxes poetic about olive oil in the way other connoisseurs describe great wines.

    He tells us that when he was young (1930s and 40s), his father imported olive oil from Europe, but that it was dramatically different from the quality of ones we get today. He describes it as thick, dark green and spicy yet sweet (I suppose it was low acidity..) — much like Theros Olive Oil you introduce to us! I am thrilled to have the opportunity to taste what I thought was gone forever!

    (Aside from drizzling,) my homemade salad dressings will never be the same!

  127. I tweeted about this.

  128. I would love to dip some nice bread in this great sounding oilive oil.

  147. I’d use it for bread dipping! Mmmmm!

  148. OMG, I’m always looking for great fruity olive oils that I can afford. Haven’t bought salad dressing in several years; always make my own w/various vinegars and herbs. Also, we now use olive oil w/herbs for dipping bread in place of butter. All these ideas are flowing through my head, drizzling over fresh steamed veggies, pasta, baked potatoes. I could go on and on. Always enjoy your recipes and how diverse they are. Keep up the great work and I hope I win on the bottles. Thank you!

  153. Mozzarella, fresh tomatoes from the garden (I’ll wait a few month), basil, olive oil, salt and pepper.
    That and olive oil with a few herbs to dip some crispy local bread (Hello Simple Bread in West Asheville when the farmer’s market reopens).

    By the way, did they tell you anything about storing the oil. I heard lately that it’s best to keep in the fridge but I’m curious.

    • Dear Cécy,

      First off, I would like to thank you very much for your interest in Theros Olive Oil and A Spicy Perspective. After reading through some posts I noticed your inquiry on the best way to store EVOO when not using it. I have full approval from horticulturists around the country that after the oil has been “cooled” and returns back to its original state that the chemical structure does not retain its original raw form and characteristics. In essence, the molecules which make up the oil are altered through refrigeration, which inherently change the face of the product itself.

      A premium olive oil such as ours does not need to be refrigerated after opening. In fact, it will remain at a high quality level when stored in a cool, dark place for six to twelve months. Our oil should be stored in an air-tight container; simply keeping it in our bottle with the cap tightly secured will do the trick.

      Thanks again for your interest. If you ever have anymore direct questions feel free to reach out to me at the address listed below.

  154. Backwards, sorry. I’d use it to make mayo and salad dressings.

  163. What I would make with Theros Olive Oil is a sweet, smooth, tangy vinaigrette with lime juice, honey and olive oil being the main ingredients. Nice and fresh!!!

  164. My grandmother is from Kalamata. I would make the most delicious sandwich, sliced tomatoes, feta cheese, fresh chopped oregano on thickly sliced ciabatta-broiled with a beautiful drizzle of olive oil.

  165. This recipe looks awesome! Thanks so much for the background on Theros Olive Oil. I’ve never tried it, but I will look for it now. I would love to make Rachel Ray’s Grilled Chicken Paillard with Grilled Red Onion and Asparagus Salad with Theros Olive Oil. Yum!

I would start by eating some on a slice of toast. Then, as long as the flavor isn’t masked too much, I may venture out into the world of salads, etc.

  220. Caprese salad – yum!

  221. This isn’t a cop out answer, but I’d just like to drizzle it all over a salad! I use olive oil every day and there’s nothing better than the intense flavor of good olive oil on a raw salad! :)

  235. I nearly always make my own vinaigrette. Is that raw enough for you?

  236. so pretty!! my type of recipe! I follow you everywhere :)

  237. Following @spicyperspectiv on Twitter and signed up for email…YAY

  238. I think I would love to try the olive simply drizzled over fresh tomatoes with a few grinds of black pepper and coarse salt. And I’d definitely use it for dipping!

  239. I’d love to make raw protein bars with dates and figs!

  240. I have a recipe for fried artichokes that uses evoo. After reading the recipe, it really sounds more like poaching the artichokes instead of frying. Otherwise, I might like a fresh tomatoe sandwich dressed with some great evoo.

  241. This looks wonderful. I will be making the ‘Man Salad” for the man in my life when I win.

  259. Ooo! I LOVE olive oil and this one looks amazing! I would love to drizzle over thinly sliced fennel, shaved parm, and segmented oranges with just a dash of sea salt and freshly ground pepper. YUM!

  260. Best giveaway ever! Recipe looks amazing (3 of my favorite foods: beets, fennel, and asparagus). I love having good olive oil for drizzling over homemade hummus.

  261. I’d love to try this on a salad but I make a really crusty bread I’d try dipping first.

  262. I already like the oil without tasting it, since the producer and my son share the same name.
    I would also use it in a salad. Probably something with red cabbage. I love fennel as well.

  263. So…I’d already pinned this before I realized it was an entry! Happy day for me!

  264. Okay, I don’t normally enter other blogger’s giveaways just because I feel like we get so many freebies that prizes should go to someone else. BUT…I just can’t help entering this one! I adore a good olive oil and I’ve never tried this brand. It sounds just lovely. There are so many ways I would use it…just to dip a good bread, drizzled over fresh tomatoes and basil, and I love to finish a dish with a drizzle of high-quality olive oil. YUM!

  269. OMG..seriously? a WHOLE gallon of olive oil. That is like winning the lottery! I am sure I would use a half gallon of it for dipping my bread into!!!

  270. This salad is lovely! I will definitely be making salad if I win!
