Use the beet greens for making borscht. The best borscht I ever ate had the greens stirred in just before serving. So fresh!

I love sautéed beet greens! But most of the beets near me right now don’t have them. Later in the summer.

I toast for risotto and some other things. I think it prevents them from getting mushy in case they get slightly over-cooked.

But I can’t detect much of a flavor difference after dressing and other stronger flavors come in to play.

Oops. Forgot to post last night’s salad here.

A very mediocre Caesar from a beer garden.

I am experimenting with preserved lemon vinaigrette.

Just made this one, but automatically included some greated garlic without reading the recipe through.

Here’s mine

It tastes good!

I’m wondering under what circumstances you want to exclude alliums. :thinking: Probably fruit salad.

I’m planning to use this with some emmer farro to use in a few recipes this week, including [this one].

That was a gift link, here’s the picture.

I toasted and soaked this emmer farro overnight and it’s still not soft, let alone “flayed” after maybe 40 minutes.

Another wonderful mâche, this time with tomatoes & avocado. Garlicky, mustardy, herb dressing.

Very simple arugula with shaved pecorino dressed with lemon oil / lemon juice / s&p. I totes blanked on my plan to add walnuts, but it was just fine without them :slight_smile:

Oh, and a burrata caprese with half an avocado.
