Beets

I have long hated beets. Maybe I associate them with candied apples. Well, after decades….my tune has changed.  I recently had a couple friends over for a last dinner in my current house before I started to pack it up. My friend, Dean, prepared the most amazing Roasted Golden Beet Salad. When I was traveling in the Pacific NW last week, it seemed that beets were in season and every restaurant had them….red beets.  I liked them also….though Golden Beets have an earthier taste.

Here is a salmon dish that I had with beets in a small Washington State town near the Olympic National Park.  Delicious..though they colored the rice with beet that the salmon sat on and it looked a little like hamburger. It was in a small town and sometimes chefs in remote areas try too hard.
