Barnston Island pea shoots
1 tbsp sourdough miso (any miso will do)
2 tbsp yuzu juice (or lime juice)
1 tsp sriracha
pickling liquid (3 parts vinegar, 2 parts water, 1 part sugar)
dill oil (1 part dill, 1 part grapeseed oil; blended and strained)
salt, to taste
Sheet gold beet (wide, thin slices) and cut into canneloni shape. Marinate in pickling liquid.
Sheet 1/2 zucchini and cut into cannelloni shape. Marinate in dill oil.
Brunoise (fine dice) avocado, apple, grapefruit, onion, and 1/2 zucchini.
Mix miso, yuzu juice, sriracha for dressing. Add enough dressing to liberally coat the diced fruit and vegetable, and season to taste with salt.
