Use our Lemon-Herb Dressing in this bean salad.



Remove any stones or dirt from the beans. Cover with cold water and soak overnight in the refrigerator. Drain and rinse thoroughly.

Place the beans in a large pot and cover with water. Add onion, carrot, leek, thyme, bay leaf and salt. Bring to a simmer and cook until tender, stirring occasionally, about 1 1/2 hours. Drain, rinse and remove aromatics.

Preheat oven to 350° F.

Toss together sliced fennel, olive oil, salt and pepper. Place on a sheet pan and roast in the oven until tender, 20 to 30 minutes.

In a large bowl, combine cooked beans, roasted fennel, celery, Pickled Garlic, red onion and reserved fennel fronds. Toss gently to coat with Lemon-Herb Dressing. Chill until ready to serve.


This salad can be prepared the day before and kept refrigerated. The flavors will continue to develop as it rests.
