Marinated Beet Salad with Cashews and Pistachio Oil

      I guess I should thank god for Dumb Dumbs or I would really have nothing to blog about.
      I have a new test if a boy is smart enough to date me.
      I don’t mean city smart.
      I mean mountain smart.
      It used to be a good test of a guys wilderness personality if they dressed in more North Face and less Affliction T shirts.
      This week after a day fishing at the lake I have a new screening process.
      I know, it sounds like the beginning of a Jeff Foxworthy joke but

     If you are not smart enough to open a beer proof trash can than you are not smart enough to get a kiss goodnight!
     Seriously is it to much to ask to go out with a guy who is smarter or as smart as a black bear?
      I don’t think I’m asking for a lot here. 

     After a day at the lake fishing and watching a Dumb Dumb try to figure out the secret to getting the bear trash can open. ( I finally did it for him) I like to go home alone and make this delicious marinated beet salad.

     You can buy these delicious marinated beets at Whole Foods or Vons.
     Every flavor is absolutely amazing!

    I have seen more people struggle with those bear-proof trash cans than one would think possible!! Recipe sounds delicious 🙂

    I am not a fan of beets, but I love cashews and everything else in the salad, so I’d give it a try.

    As for Dumb Dumb and the trash can; the story is good for a laugh, so not a total waste 🙂
