After my California trip, I was ready to come home to sunshine, asparagus and English peas… Instead, I was welcomed by rain, temperatures back in the 30ºs and more of the same at the market. Not be a be a total bore and keep mentioning the weather, but this was not quite what I had in mind.
To make the most of it, I decided to make one last winter salad. The hearty grain kind that I can keep in the fridge for a few days, and have it for lunch while we wait out this (please let it be the last) cold-snap.
We know that beets and carrots are a great match, and since they are some of the few things in the produce section that I have yet to tire of, I thought they would make a nice starting point for this salad. I decided to use golden beets, knowing this salad will likely sit refrigerator for a few days, and their color does not bleed the way red beets do. As for the prep, they were roasted and cubed, but I kept the carrots raw – you know, with spring *being here* and all.
Doesn’t that just look inviting? I saw this cranberry sorbet and thought that I definitely wanted to make something for Thanksgiving as a bit of a palate cleanser. Something after the turkey, but before settling into pie. Since we all know you need a break between the two.
And ginger and orange are my favorite combos with cranberry, so I thought that would make a great granita – something simple to enjoy with some Processco – almost as a digestif.
