My Guest Post for Como Water - Vanilla Scented Beet Citrus Salad
I was flattered when Tiffany over at Como Water asked me to do a guest post on her blog, I am always admiring the beautiful and delicious things she is posting on there! I wanted to make something special for her that I felt reflected the spirit of her blog, and decided to go with a savory but also a little sweet salad recipe, one using one of my all time favorite ingredients, beets! I have been loving them in salads lately, and I thought this time I would pair them with citrus in the form of kumquats and oranges in a vanilla hibiscus vinaigrette! It is lovely, light and delicious! The sweet beets are wonderful with the slightly tart kumquats and oranges and the dressing is fragrant with vanilla and a lovely shade of pink from the hibiscus. The toasted almonds are a nice textural contrast as well. It makes me forget all about the fact that it is winter, and think I am somewhere sunny. If you wish to recreate it, head over to Tiffany's blog to find the recipe for Vanilla scented Citrus and Beet Salad!
