Nyuszi's ThoughtsBy Nyuszi
Today I bought beets galore [sans beet tops – nobody seem to sell them]. I enjoy beetroots and love tarragon and this is the first time I paired the two. It’s a delicious combination and simple to make. Thyme or marjoram would also be good as would any of the many variety of beets. An interesting one would be Chioggia. Hope you enjoy this salad.
