In no other dish does the condiment take center stage as it does in salad. With a billion varieties of dressings out there, it’s easy to be tempted by a bottle of Hidden Valley (or Annie’s, if you drive a Volkswagen).
Admittedly, this salad may be trying a little too hard (or perhaps I’ve been watching too much Top Chef). In any case, if you’re looking for a sophisticated, unique way to start off a dinner party, this is just the trick.
Words can’t express my passion for beets. They’re sweet, tender, and are versatile enough to accompany a myriad of other flavors – mild chèvre, sharp vinegar, smooth olive oil (I could keep going for a while).
