Ingredients:

Salad

8 oz. Farro

1 lb. roasted red beets

1 lb. roasted yellow beets

8 oz. green and yellow cherry tomatoes (boiled)

8 oz. cucumbers

4 oz. mixed greens

3 tbs. olive oil

Tzatziki Sauce

16 oz. plain Greek yogurt

2 Tbs. shredded cucumber

salt and white pepper to taste

1 Tbs. Lemon Juice

1 Tbs. Mint


Method of Preparation:

- Bring salted water to a boil and add the Farro. While that's on the stove, put your beets in the oven and roast at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes.

- Now- make the Tzatziki Sauce. In a bowl, add plain Greek yogurt, lemon juice, chopped cucumbers, salt and pepper and mix well.

To Plate:

Put the sliced beets down on the plate, then top with Tzatziki Sauce and then the Farro. Drizzle olive oil, salt and pepper over boiled yellow and green tomatoes and stack them on top of the Farro. Cut the cucumber with a melon baller and add them and cubed red and yellow beets to the plate in a decorative way. Also place mixed greens around the plate. Finish salad with a drizzle of olive oil and garnish with some micro basil.

    Kindness and charm, unlike the people that live in Sin City, and i'm not talking about Vegas either. Things have changed in the town of Sin as in the motion picture while others have stayed the same. The cast of the movie told Deco what's new in part two.?

    This year's Miami Spice could use a phone book just to list the restaurants taking part, more than a hundred. Which means filling up on three courses for only $39 bucks. And at some places, that means saving a whole lot of money.
