A few tips:
- You can cook the beets in advance.
- I like to use a mandolin when slicing the beets to get equally thin slices, but you can also just use a sharp knife.
- Use good quality tomatoes that are sweet and flavorful. Don’t use the cheap once that are tasteless and bland.
- The same goes for the strawberries.
- I like to dry roast my almonds and have them a bit warm when serving this dish. But you can skip that part if you want to.
- You can sub the almonds for any nuts or seeds that you like or have at home.
