  • beet salad in sour cream dressing
    Beets have been on my radar for a while. I often associate them with the delicious salad they serve at SF’s House of Prime Rib and with the salad bar at Portico’s. I’ve never prepared them myself though, but with the onset of the CSA food basket that my friend Brent bequeathed to me, I was obliged to finally try. I went to the index of my favorite go-to resource, Jacques Pepin’s Essential Pepin, and found this recipe for beet salad with sour cream and onions. Like many of this recipes, this one turned out delicious. beetsonionsour creamcider vinegarsaltblack peppersugar
