It's Time To Get Fat. Real Fat!

Nothing Beets This Salad (featuring Fatworks Chicken Schmaltz)

We love using Chicken Schmaltz as a base for salad dressings and it works exceptionally well will this beet salad. Don't ask us why it just does. Surprisingly fulfilling too. Hint make the dressing first and put it in the fridge before making the salad.
