Test Kitchen Tip
For ease, roast the beets ahead of time and refrigerate them. Be sure to bring them to room temperature before serving.
Preheat oven to 425°.
For the beets, toss beets with 2 Tbsp. oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast beets on a baking sheet until fork-tender, 20–25 minutes.
For the vinaigrette, whisk together lemon juice, 2 Tbsp. oil, Dijon, honey, and shallots; season with salt and pepper.
For the salad, toss fennel bulb, apple, and zest with vinaigrette to coat. Serve salad with beets, goat cheese, and walnuts; garnish with fennel fronds.
