Yesterday was an interesting day. The universe was trying to tell me that food disappointment happens and I need to just accept it.
Let’s start at the beginning…
I thought the Strawberry festival was that morning. I was so excited! I got up, got my family ready, drove over to where it was suppose to be, and found out it was next Sunday. Oops.
Well that’s okay, we said. Let’s get breakfast instead. (Inner Dr. Seuss coming out.)
Breakfast was horrible. Like really bad. I’m not sure how you can create a scramble with no flavor, but it apparently it’s possible.
Middle of the day was pretty good. We had some technology issues, but overall we had fun.
Dinnertime, we go out to sushi with a friend. New management and new sushi chef = food that was not so good and a much more expensive bill.
Finally, as I was working on the blog, I realized I never took pictures of the tomato dish I made for one of the cookbook recipes. I was without a recipe for one day.
Soooo, I needed to double up or recreate that recipe. Honestly though, I wanted to double up just to keep the momentum.
Today, I made two recipes from the cookbook, The New Yiddish Kitchen. The ginger lime beet and apple salad was a tasty and fresh side. A lot of flavor packed into one salad, and it’s light and without any regretful ingredients. The dish is Whole30 safe and would go well with chicken or beef.
I wish I was able to use watermelon beets to give a bit more color to the dish. The red beets were a little overpowering in color, but still looked stunning like a jewel on the table.
My hands were stained red but the color came off after a few washes.
What refreshing salads do you enjoy making? Have you ever had a raw beet?
