Steps to make Fennel and Roasted Cherry Salad


Toast almonds


In a pan over high heat, toast 2 tablespoons of almond flakes until golden and fragrant. Take care not to toast for too long to avoid burning, and set aside to cool.


Preheat oven

Preheat the oven to 390 °F.


Dress cherries


In a baking dish, toss pitted cherries with a teaspoon of olive oil, a teaspoon of maple syrup to coat, then add a few marjoram leaves and season with sprinkles of sea salt and black pepper, to taste.


Bake cherries


Bake cherries in the preheated oven for about 20 minutes, tossing, halfway through the cooking process.


Combine dressing


In a small mixing bowl, whisk 1½ tablespoons of olive oil, 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar, 2 teaspoons of whole grain mustard, and ½ a chopped shallot, if using, then season with salt and pepper.


Add fennel


Add finely sliced fennel and toss to coat in the dressing.



Once well coated, arrange the fennel slices on a large serving platter and scatter the roasted cherries with juices, all over. Sprinkle chopped fennel fronds, marjoram leaves and toasted almond flakes as garnishing.

Replaced the almonds for walnuts.


Will not be making this again It was too expensive, maple syrup is 8 dollars here...

Natasha Radano

Didn't bother adding the mustard i think it takes away from the sweeteness of the cherries.

Royal Lendo

Tried this out and thought the cherries kinda ruined the taste.


Amazing! Thank you!
