It’s been raining cats and dogs all day today. Of course we picked today to go out for a shopping expedition… We both had the day off which doesn’t happen all that often and so that seemed like a good time… Turns out we were the only souls on the street. Imagine how bad the weather was!
So over to the salad of the day. Perfect for when you want a little sunshine in your life and the weather is not cooperating. It’s with egg and beetroot. Always a golden combination in my book. We used the beets precooked, so if you have raw beets make sure to add the extra time needed to cook them.Print
