It’s nearly time for winter break (!!!), which means it is “only posting stuff that makes me happy,” which translates to “good food and cuddly animals.” In that vein, here is Michael Procopio’s beet and orange salad, to fight the Seasonal Affective Disorder and celebrate the winter solstice that will (eventually) bring the sunshine back to us.
Get the recipe at Bay Area Bites! Though I remain ambivalent about beets, this salad is gorgeous. You might add some pomegranate seeds for extra-fancy winter produce points, should you be so inclined. Or serve it atop a bed of kale for a vegan superfood knockout.
