Blueberry and Beet Summer Salad

Print Friendly Version Print Friendly Version

Summer is in full swing and beets are popping up all over your local farmers markets. Right now, you can find them in all the colors of the rainbow: purple, red and yellow. Each color has its own unique flavor profile. Our favorite is yellow because they have a simple sweet element that reminds us of sunshine.

What? Did you just say that you don’t like beets? Wait …. Wait, don’t close out of this post just yet. I know we don’t know each other that well, but I think you might be wrong. Perhaps it’s because your grandparents would try to feed you those classic pickled beets. Trust us, we understand.

Tinsley’s grandfather used to stick cornbread in a glass with sliced pickled beets and onions and top it off with buttermilk. Gross! Forget those memories and trust us when we say that these little root veggies are nothing short of amazing.

Let’s give beets a chance!
