This salad looked and sounded so summer! Husband and I enjoyed it very much; the slight bite of the red onion, the Dijon vinaigrette, and the sweet meatiness of the beets. Those beets were gotten at Conte’s (I went to buy them myself after last week with the strawberries from CA and not the much anticipated Jerseys ones!).
After peeling the roasted beets Son and Nephew thought I could pass for having blood on my hands, but then that’s a teenage boy’s perspective. Thankfully, the beet juice stain rinsed fairly clean!
Served this wonderful salad alongside a steak and herbed garlic bread and it was dinner; simple and delicious!
Funny how the deeper into summer we go, the fewer words needed to translate the laid back bliss that summer delivers.
Happy Summer and Happy Independence Day!
