Symon Sundays: Spicy Tomato and Blue Cheese Soup & Shaved Fennel Salad with Lemon, Dill and Watercress

This week's Symon Sundays recipes were chosen by Tasha of The Brick Kitchen. I was really excited to try the tomato soup because I love anything with blue cheese and sriracha might be my favorite condiment! The soup was fantastic, simple but clean flavors, and lots of it! I love recipes that have fewer ingredients, but utilize big flavor. It almost tasted like a buffalo chicken soup, absolutely delicious!
The fennel salad, I had my doubts about. I'm not a huge fennel fan, but decided to keep an open mind. I think the orange and lemon did wonders at balancing out the sharp licorice taste, and the salad was fresh and delicious. I loved these two dishes, and as always, I love Chef Symon :)
If you'd like to see the recipes, check them out at Tasha's blog as they were her choice this week! Tomato Soup and Fennel Salad recipes can be found here. And stop by everyone else's blog to see what they thought!

Glad you liked them too! I'd never had raw fennel or sriracha before- so I'm so glad I got to try new things.

Looking at your beautiful pictures makes me wish I could do something more than open a can.
