2005: So simple, so sumptuous! A late stop at a neary farm stand yielded a bonanza: four big bunches of beets, four bucks. (Perhaps other places put things on sale on Sunday afternoon?) I cooked 'em all so look for recipes using cooked beets over the next several days.
2011: Back in 2005, this was the sixth beet recipe I posted in three months. No wonder I was on my way to being named 'beet queen'! But this remains one of the very favorites, so very simple, the earthy beets and the tangy feta, brightened with lemon juice. When I want to introduce people to beets, this is the first choice.
RECIPE for BEETS with FETA
Time to table: 5 minutes
2 large cooked beets, diced or sliced (see TIPS)
Feta cheese, crumbled
Arrange diced or sliced beets on four small plates, top with feta. Sprinkle with fresh lemon juice. That's it! Now enjoy!
