Red.  Daring.  Slightly immoral.  It’s the …Scarlet Lady!  I had red chard in my fridge just begging to be used so I went for it and used it a theme.  Today was all about being red, red red.

The result: While I didn’t turn suddenly scandalous (more’s the pity), I did enjoy the sweeter side of the beet and carrot.   And the color was simply fabulous.

Note to self: do not wear white while drinking this juice.
