In this corner, piled atop mounds of arugula, we have one of the most under-rated, under-used vegetables that scream with color and bleed natural sweetness.  They can be roasted, they can be boiled, they can be pickled, they hail from under the very ground we walk on…  Okay, okay, okay they’re just beets.  But look at the beautiful barrage of beet blood, blue cheese, balsamic and black walnuts.  I kind of need a beeting after that one.  And don’t forget about the rich earthy greens that come attached to these bombastic balls of bliss.  Ouch!  Beet me…please.

      Spicy-think about this- Endive leaves, tiny cubes of roasted beets, crumbled Gorgonzola, shaved roasted chestnuts with Truffle oil vinaigrette and maybe garnished with some micro greens or pea sprouts…was laying awake last night thinking…
