All ingredients were purchased at the Silverlake Farmers Market in Los Angeles, CA.
Painted Beet Salad
- 2 large red beets
- 1 bunch of asparagus
- 1/2 a medium onion, sliced
- squeeze of lemon juice
- drizzle of farmers market olive oil (I used Nuvo)
Preheat your oven to 450. Scrub the dirt off of the beets and place them on a baking sheet. Cook for about 50 minutes. When the beets are done, allow them to cool enough to touch. Once cooled, peel the skin off with your fingers.
Next, sauté the onion in a pan over medium heat. Add asparagus and continue to cook for about 10 minutes or so. Once asparagus and onion are slightly browned, add cut up beets and mix to combine. Plate and drizzle with lemon juice and extra virgin olive oil from your local market. Nothing else required! And don’t forget to take a moment to dazzle at your beet painting once your done with your meal.
