Say it loud, say it often, say it in color–perhaps this is how an ad man like Don Draper would pitch this salad–one that shouts with bright, clear colors, ready to make it’s prime-time appearance on your holiday table. Bijouxs, beautiful recipes by design.
My education and work as a commercial designer is a big part of Bijouxs the Little Jewels Collection of recipes; I am a visually driven diner. This salad just screams color, and lots of it, thus my recall of the classic ad men quip from design school. It is true, that beautiful, brightly colored images capture our attention, this also translates to the food we eat.
Beet, Carrot & Cranberry Salad, is a colorful stunner of a salad. Vivid technicolor hues are all courtesy of the beautiful produce. Thankfully, it is easy to prepare and sure to bring a pop of color to your holiday table. Tender slices of cooked beets, layer with thin, crisp slices of carrot, bathed in a light, yet festive red wine dressing punctuated with the bite of tart, fresh cranberries. Make yours a really easy fix utilizing ready cooked beets and a simple hand-held mandoline slicer. Create your mise en place by pre-slicing each ingredient, then prepare the simple vinaigrette, plate and serve.
Say it in color this holiday season with beautiful recipes by design, from Bijouxs.
As always, enjoy. B
