    Hey guys, I'm making a slow cooked (135 minutes) Beef Stroganoff for dinner tomorrow night, and I want to serve a side salad with it. One salad I am liking the sound of is Caramelized Fennel and Onion, but, will it go well together? If not, are there any small but amazing side salads you would suggest?

    Something with a bit of acid to balance all that yummy fat.

    Maybe something using sweet/sour beets, served cold.

    Colorful and flavorful.

    I would also go with a cold salad. Fennel, apple & orange make a nice combo.

    The salad should offer both acid and crunch... otherwise the meal will be too heavy and mushy. Add some really nice crunchy-crusted bread too!
