In the final week of the June Challenge, we still have some takers! This is Kelly of Vegan Haighters’ beet greens salad, about which she says
[N[ever having consumed fresh beets meant no beet greens. What a deprived childhood I had.
At my local farmers’ market in Upper Haight, fresh beets caught my eye. I searched through the pile for ones with the prettiest, leafiest greens. I’m sure the cashier was confused as to why I was focusing on the greens rather than the beets themselves, but then again there’s weirder things Haight Street has seen.
Result: She loved them. Go get her recipe for this beet-tastic salad, and let’s celebrate another new food conquered! Congratulations, Kelly!
