So, what to do with all these...beets? After enlisting the help of several beet-literate friends and trying several recipes, I am now a beet convert! Truth be told, I actually LOOK for fresh beets at the co-op when I do my shopping now....I have come a long way!
Do you have weird memories of beets, too? Take my advice, they are worth trying as an adult, but eat them fresh, roasted. You will not regret it! I like the idea of using the entire beet, greens and all, in a recipe. The greens are nutritious and taste wonderful.
So here is an original recipe, which can be eaten hot or cold. You can take it to a picnic or eat it over baby greens for lunch. It is super-versatile, and tastes absolutely delicious. Prepare it ahead of time, and eat it all week. Enjoy!
