Cream of Root Vegetable Soup

This week we went from a beautiful 80° day on Sunday to chilly, windy fall weather on Monday. And fall weather totally calls for soup. I’ve been hoarding the root vegetables that have been in my baskets the last couple of week and decided this was the time for a soup creation to go along with the weather.

Grapefruit Fennel Salad with Citrus Basil Vinaigrette

Wednesday, October 30th, 2013

I love fennel.  When I saw fennel in the Bountiful Basket this week, I was so happy!  I used to go to a restaurant because the Citrus Salad with fennel and basil vinaigrette were wonderful.  The restaurant closed and I had to make my own salad. Fennel is crisp with a hint of licorice and balances so well with the tartness of the grapefruit.  The citrus basil vinaigrette adds to the flavor elements.  This is the recipe I developed and I hope you will enjoy it, too!
