Salad Du Jour

Sunday, August 19, 2012

Okay Sparkies!!

Just got in from working 3 hours in my veggie garden. Man oh man, do I have PRODUCE!!!

The peas have gone nuts, as have the carrots, lettuces, beets, tomatoes and squashes. Wish you all lived closer.............I would storm you with lots of brand new, just grown and picked, organic veggies.

Tonight's salad is

Cook beets with water and 1/2 C balsamic vinegar until just soft, then immerse them in ice water for 10 minutes. Cover them and refrigerate several hours to make sure they are really cold.

Just before serving, put beets in individual bowls and add some Balsamic Vinegar and crumbled Feta Cheese.

Don't blame ME if your family wants these every night!!!!! emoticon

    Now that is the healthy way to go--grow you own and you will know for sure what is in your vegetables. Wish I lived closer to you too.
