I made this salad over the weekend: a layer of farmer's cheese covered in thinly-sliced raw baby beets and avocado. It reminded me of Yayoi Kusama. Then I toasted some cumin seeds with slivered almonds and topped the salad with that and some olive oil. I loved this fresh, new flavor combination.
1. According to Jasper, raw beets taste like raw carrots.
2. I usually use cumin sparingly because of its funky smell, but toasted who it's a totally different spice.
I have extra cumin/almond mix, so I've stored it for future salads. Highly recommend it!
