Have you ever heard of Chioggia beets? You’ve probably seen them on Instagram. If you’re lucky enough to find them at your farmers market, here’s a recipe for a shaved, raw Chioggia beet salad with queso fresco, mint, and almonds.
Here’s a recipe for a strawberry tart, with the pastry cream upgraded to have queso fresco in it. Queso fresco is a Mexican cheese, with a slightly salty undertone to it, that complements the sweet strawberries really well. This is a delicious and unexpected dessert recipe!
