This colorful spread is made of raw beets and white beans. The addition of sweet macadamia oil is perfectly balanced with the tangy flavors of cranberry juice and acerola.

Served for a fresh, vibrant buffet, this spread can be placed in coffee cups. Here, I used Digoin Sarreguemines vintage cups (so 50’s!), with black enamel contrasting with bright colors…
