Berkeley Bowl is quite simply amazing – it’s like the farmer’s market every day. Tons of gorgeous, delicious fruits and veggies, along with a fabulous assortment of bulk dry goods and as local and organic as you can get in a grocery store. The icing on the cake – it’s cheap!
I picked up these carrots during my trip on Saturday and finally brought to life a vision I’ve had for a while now – a salad of rainbow carrots ribbons…
I started by peeling off the outer skin and just kept on peeling to create my ribbons. I tossed them with a home made dressing of white wine vinegar, mayo, roasted garlic and tarragon… While it was good, I kind of wished I’d simply put a little olive oil and aged balsamic on it. Though you have to admit that it’s beautiful, no matter the dressing.
