For a few weeks, I was receiving tons of beets with my farm share. One day I decided to shred a dozen or so, which sent me from wondering what to do with beets to wondering what to do with shredded beets. Inspiration came from pondering other available produce, which included farm share spring onions and carrots as well as a couple of apples. I love the shredding disc on my food processor. And I love caramelized onions. The whole thing came together beautifully with a splash of balsamic vinegar. My friend Jay was over rah-rah-ing the whole way, which also helped. We ate the lovely and yummy salad sitting out on the porch. The balance of the various sweet, sour, and tart flavors worked out just right.
