Surprise your loved one with a lovely heart-shaped salad from Martha Stewart’s website:
- Romaine lettuce
- Cottage cheese
- 1 bag of croutons
- Prepare the beets by roasting or steaming them: To roast, heat oven to 400 degrees, wrap beets tightly in foil, and cook until a fork slides in easily, about 1 hour. To steam, place whole beets in a steamer basket in a medium saucepan, and cook until fork tender, 25 to 60 minutes, depending on their size.
- Peel the beets once they’re cooled; for easy peeling, use paper towels to rub skins off.
- Slice peeled beets thinly with a mandoline, and make heart shapes with a cookie cutter.
- Add the rest of ingredients (romaine lettuce, cottage cheese, and the bag of croutons) and enjoy.
