Velochic - I think the "chevre" belonged with the first combo - "apples with cheddar or chevre". There's just a space missing between "chevre" and the slash mark.

I like fruit in salads, either an apple or a nectarine. Or raw grated beetroot. A light dressing that adds sweetness is a simple squeeze of juice from an orange. The other thing that makes a fantastic change, unbelievably good when you consider how simple it is, is to very finely dice the salad ingrediants. My mother taught me that. That way it is almost like a relish, you get more flavours in each fork full and it tastes more "dressy" than salad. I am always stiving to make salad more interesting with out adding fatty ingrediants or high calorie ingrediants, cheese is out for me

YAAY for beetroot! I love it. I often boil them, wait till they cool, skin and then add a squeeze of orange juice and a little orange zest. Leave to marinate for a while. YUM

Okay... got it. I probably could have figured that out myself if I'd taken the time. Thanks for clarifying!

I don't believe I've ever had beetroot... what does it look like? What do you do with it? I'm sure I could google for it, but any info here, would be nice.

Forgot to mention... thank you to everyone's suggestions! I have a wonderful list of things to experiment with. Very helpful!! Danke!

I buy bottled beetroot in Beijing that is imported from Germany. It is labeled Rote Bete.

And I have a distnct recollection of ejoyng beetroot the last times I was in Hamburg. Try it. It is delicious, especially in salads.

Ach!! Thanks! Now I know what it is. Unfortunately, I am not a big fan of it. My hubby is, though.
