Fennel, beetroot and cauliflower salad with citrus mustard dressing

Fennel, beetroot and cauliflower salad with citrus dressing

It’s the first day of spring and I for one cannot wait for the warmer weather and longer days that are yet to come! The weather has such an impact on the food choices we make. This fennel, beetroot and cauliflower salad is the perfect in between seasons salad. It is warm and filling thanks to the oven-baked cauliflower and beetroot, yet zesty and fresh thanks to the herbs, fennel, and citrus dressing.
