This is very different. The combination of flavors (fennel, shallots, sweet onion, garlic) with the light crunch of toasted walnuts was wonderful. I DID add about 1/4 cup of light sour cream, though. I thought it needed something to bind it. Mine was not watery at all (do simmer out all the water from the vegetables, though). I added just a bit more olive oil to mine. The color may turn some people off - but the flavor is delicious. Would definitely make again.
