This is week 3 of me posting without a camera. I’ve actually ordered a new one but it is not scheduled to arrive for several weeks. I can’t tell you how tempted I am to take a break from French Fridays with Dorie and come back when my camera arrives. It feels somehow pointless posting about food with no accompanying pictures. Heck, I’m the first one to complain about a cookbook without pictures in it. But that’s life isn’t it? And I guess that’s blogging too. Sometimes your camera gets stolen and you have to carry on without it. So, moving on.
This week’s FFwD Dorie recipe is Lime and Honey Beet Salad. As I may have mentioned before, I absolutely love beets, and I especially love the pre-cooked beets that they sell here in the markets. You can also buy them in the supermarkets vacuum packed. They are not canned or pickled or anything, and they will not keep a particularly long time. I just love the convenience of them. It made this week’s recipe a snap. I think it took me all of 10 minutes to throw together. I tried the salad right after it was finished and then again after Dorie’s recommended 2 hour wait and I can confirm that it made a big difference in the flavor. Guess that Dorie knows a thing or two.
She certainly knows her salads, I think I’ve liked most of the recipes in that section and this one was an easy winner in my house. Very few ingredients, very little prep work, very tasty. And healthy too! The kind of recipe which is destined to make many more appearances.
