Day 349: Fragrant Orange Beetroot Salad ◄

This delicious beet salad comes with lessons.
  • Roasting beets is efficient! Up front, invest five minutes in prep, then unattended time in the oven. Once the beets're roasted, it's one quick salad after another. (The last one was only just on Day 347. )
  • Fragrance doesn't roast in (as attempted Day 346). But it's easy to add later. This salad is scented with orange but lemon and lime would be good too.
  • Well-organized bookmarks take some discipline. But when you've got cooked beets and 30 minutes til supper's expected, no worries if your bookmarks have a folder for "beets", better yet, one for "beets" and another for "cooked beets".
