Remember sour candies? Perhaps you still indulge once in a while. I have occasionally, though chocolate was always my favourite treat. Their appeal lies in the contrast between the powerfully sour coating and the sweetness of the candy underneath. It’s a pleasurable shock.
Dorie’s Lime Honey Beet Salad has that same effect, albeit in a much more grown up and healthier fashion. My first bite had me drawing a quick breath of surprise, even though I knew exactly what was in the salad (I made it, after all). We had this with a slow-cooked moose stew that I’d cooked overnight and it made a nice contrast.
Just a quick, late post this time. It’s been a busy month and I’m looking forward to a less hectic July.

Thanks. I have wonderful beets coming in from the garden and am always looking for new ways to convince my kids to enjoy them with me!
I do like sour candies, but beets don’t quite do it for me 😦
The dish you used for your salad is pretty.
Have a great week!
A perfect comparison and description of what this tastes like. Beautiful photos, Teresa!
