I can’t lie, I have a thing for Indian Casinos. There is one called River Rock in Sonoma County about an hour and a half North of San Francisco. One day after losing a little money on video poker, Jason and I stumbled upon this great little pizzeria in Geyserville, (a cute little wine town in Sonoma County) called Diavolo. It is a salumeria and they cure their own meats and make a mean thin crust pizza. As it is wine country you know the food is going to be good. But this place far exceeded my expectations. I love it and if I get married in Wine Country I would want my Friday night rehearsal dinner at this place. :)
This recipe is my take on a salad we had at Diavolo. It is hearty and can be served as an appetizer or a full meal. If you read The Chefanies on a regular basis you know that Chefanie Wambach and I are obsessed with beets. We also have a tendency to like this Italian grain. This is one tasty salad!
