Raw Colors at Sunset

The turning leaves let crowds flock to the Rivertowns and upstate NY in the last weekends of October and early November. Our long Sunday hike on trails around Lake Minnewaska gave us many scenic pictures. Lively fall colors were always among my favorites. For a ‘turning leaf party‘ this weekend, I made a colorful sweet root salad, which is also a very good valentine’s day theme. The raw winter salad, a fancy way of good old ‘Rohkost’, asks for Jicama, however, a little turnip does the trick. (A mild daikon or soft kohlrabi may work as well). The root vegetables will be turned soon pinkish and red by the beet, no matter how small it might be. Shredding the beet at a larger grade or adding it at the very last moment, will preserve the other colors for some time. A blood orange and orange juice brings sweetness, that an apple can intensify even more. See Recipe
