Beet Berry Salad: A Work in Progress

4 Jul
by Deanne
Have you ever had a great food idea in your head, but then that idea didn’t translate to the plate (aka a flop)? 

That is what happened with this salad.  I dreamed it up to be our FarmerChef special for the 4th of July holiday.  It was going to be red, white and blue.

In my head, the beets were the red,the kohlrabi would be the white, and a blueberry vinaigrette would finish out this patriotic plate. 

As you can see from the picture the color of the blueberry vinaigrette and the beets turned out to be a lovely shade of purple, just not the patriotic colors I was imagining.  It tasted pretty good, but we all agreed that the flavor wasn’t quite right (yet!). So Luke snapped a few pictures, donned the salad with a new name and Steve went back to the kitchen to create a less patriotic FarmerChef special.

This salad may show up again with a refined recipe or it may just become an interesting memory.

Are you creating a patriotic dish for your 4th of July celebrations?  Do you have a favorite beet salad recipe? 

Have a fun 4th and hopefully there are some flops (the sandal kind) in your day! :)
