A food blog for the poor and huddled masses: the college students, the single bachelors and bachelorettes, the married couples living on a shoestring, or anyone who works and wants a warm meal when they get home. I'm currently a law student, going through the trials of student loans and the refusal to eat poorly. You can also find me on twitter @cheapeasyfood
Let's go ahead and add beets to the list of things that I never in a million years thought that I would like even though I had never tried them (because I had never tried them). WRONG. Beets are amazing. I love them for a few reasons: their earthy sweetness, their color (we really don't eat enough purple), and the way they can be transformed to fit many different types of dishes. For this salad I roasted and sliced them and added them to a simple salad with a simple dressing. It all comes together beautifully, and the beets could even be roasted a day before if you want them cold.
