Being a no-cook recipe doesn't mean you have the skip on the fanciness. Channel your inner French food connoisseur with this fresh spin on a tartine. Earthy beets combine with fennel, which adds notes of anise to the dish, for a unique flavor that will bring you back for more. When buying ingredients, be sure to choose sustainably harvested salmon.
