Husband loved it, I thought it was just ok. I rated this four stars for the ingredients, but it really deserves only three for execution. The combination of fennel, beets and apples along with the honey dijon is really, really good. Unfortunately, because beets and fennel are both very dense, the cooking time is way underestimated. Mine needed 15 minutes in the microwave after 45 minutes in a 450 degree oven. The last 15 minutes in the oven would never have cut it. I recommend either microwaving for 10-15 minutes, then roasting at 450 (not 400) for one hour, and/or slicing the beets and fennel rather thinly (don't quarter the beets) and leave the apples in quarters. Also, I would add an extra dollop of honey dijon dressing or mustard; after the long cooking time the vinegar in the dressing, plus the added vinegar, become the dominant taste. Finally, for ease of preparation, I placed the cut vegetables/fruit in a large ziploc bag, then coated them with the dressing and other ingredients, then turned them out into the roasting pan.
