Barbara Cecchiniโ€™s Beet Salad is a delicious root to stem salad! @bcecchini @firstgenerationfarmers #pcfma #roottostem #eatinseason #beets #beetsalad #eatitall #norcal #farmersmarket 

1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
6 beets - 3 medium red and 3 medium gold
Fresh beet tops from the beets
Garlic salt or a fresh garlic clove
Freshly ground black pepper


Thoroughly wash beets and greens. Cut off beet tops and set aside to cook later. Cook beets in boiling water until a knife easily passes through the beets. With a slotted spoon remove beets from boiling water and set aside to cool.  Place beet tops in boiling water and cook for 5 minutes. Remove and set aside to cool.

When the beets are cool enough, remove outer layer. The skin will remove easily if you squeeze the beet slightly with your hand. Quarter and slice the beets into a serving bowl. Thoroughly drain the greens, and squeeze them a little to remove excess moisture. Chop the beet greens and place them with the beets. Season the salad with balsamic vinegar, extra virgin olive oil, garlic salt and fresh ground pepper and serve.

If you find yourself without garlic salt, pulverize one small clove of fresh garlic and mix with oil and vinegar to evenly distribute.

WE ๐Ÿ’š BEANS! @iacopifarms beans are a #farmily favorite and locally grown in Half Moon Bay. You can find @iacopifarms year-round on Saturdays at our Pleasanton and College of San Mateo farmers markets.
This simple recipe letโ€™s the flavor of the beans shine through ๐Ÿ˜‹ #sogood

1 bag Iacopi Farms Italian butter beans
1 6-ounce can medium black olives, drained and sliced in half
4 stalks celery, chopped
1/3 small red onion, diced
Olive oil
Salt and pepper

To prepare beans:
Rinse butter beans under cold running water to remove surface dirt or dust.  Cover the beans in enough cold water so that when they rehydrate there is enough water for them to remain submerged. Soak overnight. Drain.

Place beans in a pot filled with cold water so that beans are covered by at least 3 inches. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to medium or medium-low so that beans continue a gentle boil. Cook about 50-60 minutes, tasting for desired tenderness. Drain and rinse with cold water. Let beans cool to room temperature.

To prepare the salad:
Place cooked beans, olives, celery, red onion, salt and pepper into a bowl. Drizzle with olive oil, adding enough oil so that all ingredients are lightly flavored. Add more or less olive oil depending on taste. 
This dish is best served at room temperature.
