Anna’s CSA Tips & Recipes

I absolutely love beets, especially chioggia or “bullseye” beets.  Their candy stripe inside looks beautiful on a plate and tastes great too.  One of my favorite beet bites is to roast them & then toss them with a cheese, a nut & a fun vinaigrette.  Here are some good ones I have seen around seattle that can’t be missed.

Other great combinations that can’t be beat – spices like cinnamon & anise, blood orange & other citrus fruits, and spicy greens like arugula. Get creative & share some of your favorite beet salads with us.
