I Like Beets, Do You?
Beets seem to be one of those vegetables that people either love or hate. I happen to love beets, especially if they are roasted. One thing that I do hate about beets, though, is prepping them. Red juice goes everywhere and it stains stuff.
So, this week, when I saw that the FFwD recipe was going to be Lime Honey Beet Salad, I decided to take the easy route. I bought already peeled and cooked beets from Trader Joe’s. They are not as good as roasting them yourself, but they do save a lot of time and trouble, which is also something I really needed this week.
It was an easy recipe to make. I had no fresh herbs in the house, so I just sprinkled in a little dried dill with the dressing and called it done. We ate it with our grilled Korean short rib lettuce wraps and pickled veggies.
It was ok. Honestly, though I love beets, I didn’t find this recipe to be anything special. So, I am glad I did not go through the extra effort of cooking them myself. Then again, maybe if I had, it might have been better. What do you think?
