|Fresh mint from our potager makes a delicious after dinner tea and read below for something I just learned today.|
Today our lovely housekeeper arrived, saw me preparing the salad, ran outside and plucked a handful of fresh mint from the garden. She then proceeded to cut it up into tiny bits and sprinkled them over the beets.
It changed everything. She is a brilliant cook and has the most creative ways of making the most mundane ingredients come alive with unexpected zing. She has taught me how to make some delicious meals.
If you like beet salads, I highly recommend you try adding fresh mint. It's absolutely delicious and raises the bar from every day to gourmet.
