Summer time can be a culinary delight. Look at this beautiful purple potato! While I admit that I’ve been an adult for quite some time, this is the first time that I’ve ever cooked red beets. I’d eaten them growing up, but never had cooked them as an adult. (It was really easy.) I actually just boiled them with the potatoes, let them cool off, then added some lettus, black beans, tomatoes and salad dressing.
