psyche-out salad

Leftover shredded carrots (from carrot cake for the birthday party) took on a psychedelic hue combined with brine from Dai Due‘s pickled beets.  Tossed with Texas-grown spring onions, fresh backyard thyme, Pure Luck goat feta (Yay!  Dripping Spring’s famous chèvre operation is back in production following the cold season hiatus) a touch of olive oil (Central Market’s brand is on sale for $6.29) and plenty of fresh-cracked black pepper, with or without a little local sauerkraut for that salty squeak (I got mine from Dai Due.  Look for Full Quiver Farm‘s lacto-fermented version at the Sunset Valley Farmers Market.), the quickly pink (pinkly quick?) salad hit the rods and cones—as well as taste buds—just right.

  1. That sounds great! I’m glad the goats are back in production. I love their cheese, especially the Hopelessly Blue.
