I’m short – vertically challenged. So I add stature with my cooking. Hubby cut me a length of PVC pipe – I make all kinds of stuff in it. Best thing is, clean up is a breeze since they fit so neatly in the glass holders in the dishwasher…..
Cook your beets til tender. You can roast your fresh ones or if you just have canned, they’ll do. Chop into 1/4″ dice.
Peel and seed cucumber- slice and chop into 1/4″ dice.
Cut and seed your tomatoes and chop into 1/4″ dice.
Julienne slice the basil and spinach/greens.
Keep everything in separate small bowls.
Mix your olive oil and red wine vinegar in something that’s pourable – I use an old catsup squirt bottle – shake it up.
Into each bowl. pour/squirt in the olive oil and vinegar. Let marinate for 15 minutes.
Now for the PVC pipe. Take 4 of them – they should be about 3″ long and 1.75″ in diameter – I can’t believe we’re talking PVC pipe here… Stack them upright on a tray that fits in the refrigerator. Fill each one with a bit of the julienned spinach, then some cucumber, then some beets, then some basil, then tomatoes – whatever looks good or you remember to do. Yes, some of the marinade will be leaking out. Finish the top of each pipe piece with some basil. Put this in the frig for at least 1 hour to chill.
Right before you serve, take 4 plates and smear them with the yogurt. Take your refrigerated pipes out and press downward onto the plates – it will slip right out into a tower!
Take your raspberry whatever and put drops around the tower. Use your toothpick and just draw down on the red til you see the heart !
