I know I’m not perfect. I get annoyed over petty things that I should be able to ignore. No matter how hard I try to live and let live, I won’t be able to get over the sound of shitty styrofoam flip flops hitting the back of people’s feet. MY GOD PUT ON A REAL PAIR OF SHOES PLEASE. I also think it has something to do with the lazy slouch and splayfooted stride people adopt when they’re wearing them. You look like a fuckin neanderthal, stand up straight. So yeah I’m working on myself.
What happened here tonight, is I spent too much time looking at the Alder Room’s menu at work today and ended up craving this idea that I could make an extremely organized salad. And that’s what happened!
1 beet, peeled and sliced 1mm thick with a mandolin
1/2 avocado, peeled and sliced 1-2mm thick
1-2 chive flowers
3 sun gold tomatoes, halved
3 fresh basil leaves
Steam beets for 10 minutes and let cool. Neatly arrange beets and avocados overtop of each other. Cut off about 5cm from each side. Arrange all other ingredients on top.
Bonus: I totally forgot I was going to season it with smoked paprika, and by the time I remembered, I had already eaten the whole thing. So sad. If you do it, let me know!
