Beets on ricotta....brilliant 

Thank you.  I happened to have a container of ricotta that needs to used up.  So ricotta goes with everything over the next few days :)

On toast. Make toast, butter it. Add a nice layer of ricotta. Then you can add a variety of things, or not. I like thin slices of tomato and salt and pepper. I am also very fond of a drizzle of honey or sorghum on the ricotta layer, then and salt and pepper. Excellent on a white pullman loaf or a rustic crusty loaf or a rye bread.

I had one roasted beet, half of day old avocado, very (and I mean very) ripe pear.  Blue cheese and cashews sprinkled on top, dressed with lime juice and olive oil.  Must go shopping for herbs.

Gorgeous.  Reminds me I have two avocadoes in the bedroom not getting any younger.  No beets nor pear, but I do have a shipment of cashews arriving from nuts.com, next day delivery.  And half a pound of the world's best cheese.

Nothing in my bedroom is getting any younger either.  And that includes me ;)

I'm having a bowl of cashews with my mai tai -- does that qualify as a salad?  (I checked with the avocados and they said they might wait a day or two.)

Watercress Salad with Beets & Walnut Mascarpone Crostini from Zuni Café Cookbook

IMG_1876.thumb.jpeg.d070d3b5476d14037218c6df74a63bf9.jpeg
The roasted beets are marinated simply in black current vinegar and olive oil and the marinade becomes the dressing.  I think I've got 24 bottles of vinegar but no black current so I subbed in tart cherry zinfandel balsamic. Don't tell.

Lovely salad and even lovelier presentation. I will never tell that you subbed in tart cherry Zinfandel balsamic for black currant vinegar.

Brussels Sprouts Salad With Mustard and Toasted Almonds from Shaya. Recipe available online here

IMG_1947.thumb.jpeg.c4424fae340a2a832c692442cc25d06e.jpeg

At first bite, I thought this was too mustard-y but the combination of textures and flavors kind of grew on me.

I have been making chopped salads lately - mainly for lunch.  Romaine, Persian cucumbers, grape tomatoes, 4 bean salads, coleslaw, macaroni salad (not all at the same time!)

Today I added some thinly sliced petit filet and some croutons.

 

Great, now I am craving poached tuna with small pasta and 4 bean salad with vinaigrette.

Nothing is better than frying in lard.

Nothing.  Do not quote me on this.

Salad of Chorizo, Avocado & Bell Peppers with Sherry Dressing from Diana Henry's Simple. Apparently the result of a merger between a Spanish tapas bar and a California salad joint!

IMG_1976.thumb.jpeg.20f716de5b20eb20781abafdef835b11.jpeg
Delicious salad and lots of fun to eat - you can make each bite a different combination of ingredients. I crisped the chickpeas in the oil left from the chorizo. The rich ingredients (chorizo, avocado, roasted pepper, etc.) need a nice bite from the sherry vinegar. I only tasted the dressing by dipping leaves of greens and ended up drizzling a bit more vinegar on afterwards.

Warm Squash and Chickpea Salad with Tahini, adapted from Moro and included in the Food52 Genius Recipes cookbook.  Recipe available online here

BBCC398F-3A1E-4C13-962A-D15A142C3953_1_201_a.thumb.jpeg.8dfe96a6eaeece44b848dc9e95ec1df5.jpeg

Based on comments from others who found this mushy or bland, I crisped the chickpeas,  slivered the onion and pickled it lightly in lime juice, tarted up the dressing with a good bit of extra lime juice and added a little roasted sesame oil to boost the tahini flavor. 

This was apparently conceived as a lettuce-free salad but I served it on curly endive.

I followed your link to the original and thought that your dish looks 100 times more appetizing. But then there are those damn chickpeas.😂
