Your veggie evangelist is a Twitter dropout – back in 2010, I gave up Twitter for Lent and never went back. But I l-o-v-e the concept of recipes in 140 or characters or less, that’s the limit of the message length of a “tweet”. So here’s your recipe, which one would grab your attention?!

Reci-tweet #2: My favorite salad of the summer. Cubes of earthy beets and wet mango with blueberries that go “pop” and creamy blue cheese. [123 characters]

Reci-tweet #3: Summer in a bowl, a contrast in color, texture, taste. Just beets, mango, blueberries and blue cheese. [102 characters]
