Roasted Beet Salad Recipe

Argentine Roasted Beet Salad

A few springs ago, I visited Argentina for a few months to take a little time off from my busy schedule and brush up on my Spanish. While in Argentina I fell in love with the culture, food, people, and wine. I went to a dozen Asados Argentinos (Argentine BBQs), ate tons of soft empanadas filled with beef, olives and hard boiled eggs, devoured the Alfajores filled with dulce de leche, couldn’t get enough of a lovely beet salad with avocado and goat cheese, and enjoyed having the chance to drink amazing Malbec with all of the yummy foods that I consumed on my trip. I love recreating the food that I had the pleasure to eat while in Argentina in my very own kitchen here in the States. In Argentina (and now at home), I serve this roasted beet salad  alongside hanger steak and a small glass of Malbec.

Sage Pork Chops & Apple Sauce Recipe

Sage Pork Chops

Taking advantage of in-season fruits and vegetables allows you to amplify your seasonal experience, and maximize what your local farmers have to offer at your neighborhood farmers market. As of now, in the North East United States, beautiful crisp apples are filling the stalls at the markets and practically begging to be used in a variety of different ways. In the recipe that follows, I want to give you a great way to incorporate this fruit into your diet, and to make a nutritious sauce that brings the sweetness out of the pork without adding extra fat and salt.
