winnar of the dinnar: Beet Salad

I invented a delicious salad: so delicious that I ate it all before I could take a picture of it. Instead let me record my deeds here so that our nation's children's children can hear the inspiring tale of KC and the Beet Salad. This day will be immortalized in song and poetry. And a major motion picture.

4ish small beets, cooked
1/2 tomato
1/2 cucumber
a sprinkle of chopped onion

Cut everything up into salad sized chunks, except for the onion which should be chopped really small already. Sprinkle chaat masala on top (not too much, it has built-in salt) and squirt it with lemon juice. This might also be good with yogurt, or with other combinations of vegetables, like potatoes or bell peppers. Eat this salad and you too can experience my immortal legacy. It was enough for two people to eat for second dinner.

Now I'm a believer

The first time I made this yogurt rice recipe, I got all evangelical about it and insisted that everyone had to eat it right away. I made it again for lunch today, and it is still delicious.

I have a lot of food to eat before I leave town this weekend; anybody want to come over?

salad update

I reverse-engineered this salad from the now-defunct deli at Strawberry Fields in Urbana.  Not quite sure that I've got their recipe, but what I do have is a delicious salad.

1 head of cabbage, sliced into shreds
1 jicama, cut into matchsticks
2 carrots, shredded
juice of 2 lemons
1-2 T sesame oil
2-4 T olive oil
salt & pepper

1 delicious salad
