There are some foods that signal spring/summer weather, and for me, beets are one of those.
Of all the types of beets that one could buy – chioggia beets are the best. Why? besides being sugary sweet, they are also the prettiest and look gorgeous in salads.
The marinated beet salad pictured on the left is from Bar Cotto in Seattle, and truly delightful on warm day. It’s full of pistachios, raisins and a bit of cilantro. But if you want to make your own, try this Martha Stewart recipe.
