|Lime Honey Beet Salad…delicious!|
I was going to skip this weeks FFwD recipe. Not because I don’t like beets (I love them), but because I was visiting my daughter and her family for the weekend. We've been very busy with end of the year school activities. First, we had a Flag Day ceremony at my granddaughters school. She and her classmates did a wonderful job of honoring some of her towns local veterans. My granddaughter did a great job giving a synopsis of one of the veterans they were honoring. She memorized her part and performed it with confidence! Watching this little girl grow into a self-assured, intelligent young lady was a thrill for me! Then we went outside to take part in her Field Day fun! Sack races and pizza were on the agenda for the day! The following day, we attended a pre-school moving up ceremony for our twin four year old grandsons! It doesn’t get better for this grandma!
So, although I bought the beets and made the dressing, I never got a chance to post about it! This beet dish was very easy to put together! I bought ready cooked beets in the produce department, so that I could get them done with all of my time constraints! Mixing all the ingredients for the dressing took minutes! I then put the beets in the refrigerator for about an hour before we served them. They were great with our dinner of grilled fish, couscous and green salad. Although we rinsed the dressing off the beets for the kids, the adults really enjoyed them. The next day my daughter and I ate the leftover beets with our lunch. They had soaked up the wonderful flavor of the dressing and were even better than the day before! Even though I'm a little late, I’m so glad I got this one done. This beet dish is something I will make and enjoy over and over again!! Another winner!
The recipe for this dish can be found in Dorie Greenspans cookbook “Around My French Table” or here where it has been posted on-line! To see what other Doristas are doing with this dish check it out here!
