This time, I was sent some different grains, beets, potatoes, and lentils. I am a huge fan of beets but of course one of the major negatives is that it dyes your hands reddish and can be messy. These beets from Melissa's come pre-peeled, precooked, and ready to eat. To make the salad below, I just opened the package, took out the beet, and sliced it up. Easy! It tasted just like when I make them fresh.
Salad with romaine lettuce, tomato, Melissa's beets, and green pepper
I have not used the grains yet but am excited to come up with a fun summer salad with them. I used the yellow potatoes in a BBQ ranch potato salad that was a big hit. My favorite thing about this company is that you can search for all types of unique and unusual produce and learn all about the uses for them, when they grow, and their nutrition. I found a few items that I really want to try that I have not before but they are not in season yet. Check out Melissa's for all different types of produce.
The giveaway will be for one copy of Melissa's Everyday Cooking with Organic Produce cookbook.a Rafflecopter giveaway
