I'm too depressed to write a lot about this. Suffice it to say I spent a couple hours cooking a spinach curry and beet salad, and it turned out so bad that I had to throw everything out. This has never happened to me. What a waste of time and money. the spinach looked like Linda Blair's puke and the shallots I put in the beet salad were so old (I just bought them!) they ruined the whole salad.
Otherwise, the beet salad I make is usually very good. I will give you the recipe another, happier day.
