Fresh Beets Salad with Egg, Dried Cherries, Asian Pears, and Cherry Tomatoes
How fresh can a salad be? Made with a fresh beet right out of the garden and prepared right in your own kitchen. Imagine this beet is regenerated from the beet's own 'head / crown'. I purchased a beet from the market, and cut the crown off with leaves still in its place. I planted it into the ground the next day. After a month, I notice the new leaves started to grow. After another month and half, voila, a new beet growing a top the head/crown that I chopped off originally. It tasted wonderful. It has so much less 'earthy' taste than the store bought ones.
