It’s spring in Charleston, but Alex Lira of Bar Normandy conjures Fall in Florida with this thusly named fruit salad that tastes as bright as it looks. While you can pickle the beets and grind the peppercorns at home, it’s fine to buy pickled beets and ground Sichuan pepper before embarking on your virtual Florida trip. And if there’s no chicory at the market, radicchio works too.
