Beet Greens with Mustard

Beet Greens with Mustard Flowers

This is such a light, simple and delicious dish; just perfect for spring and summer.  But don't wait long - the mustard is in bloom here in California (all the little yellow flowers covering the hills in Santa Barbara are mustard!), so go for a hike and pick a little straight away!

Tools needed: 
large saucepan, salad spinner (or at least, a colander)
15 minutes
1-2 tablespoons of mustard blooms, rinsed and patted dry
8 cups fresh beet greens (the tops of 6 or 8 beets) rinsed and chopped (not too small, they'll cook down a lot)
1/2 to 1 tbs olive oil
sea salt to taste
  1. Fill the saucepan 3/4 full of water and bring to a boil.
  2. Put beet greens in boiling water for 1-2 minutes, carefully remove with a slotted spoon into salad spinner basket to drain a bit before spinning. 
  3. Spin greens until most of water comes off.  (If you don't have a salad spinner, put in a colander and gently toss, then pat dry.)
  4. Toss into a bowl with olive oil, salt to taste, and top with mustard flowers.
  5. Enjoy the simple beauty before devouring!

Would it be okay with you if I linked to this page from my website? Just asking since some people don't allow linking to their sites if you don't take their permission.

Engineers who would like to have careers in management positions should seriously think about getting the PMP certification so that they can learn how to manage projects effectively. Getting the certification is a matter of passing the PMP exam which can be done with a bit of online PMP certification training.

It would depend on the content
