This unusual salad is a great side dish for those who love beets. I like the leftovers stuffed into a kaiser with some roast beef; makes for a great sandwich.

Baking beets is the best way to bring out the taste of this vegetable. Once you bake them you will nevr go back to boiling

Ingredients Nutrition

  3. Wrap beets in foil"packages", keeping similar-sized beets together and keeping all packages a single layer.

  6. Once cool, peel and dice; place diced beets in large serving bowl.
  7. In a small bowl, combine remaining ingredients to make dressing; taste and add salt if you wish.
  8. Toss diced beets with dressing and serve; may be refrigerated but bring back to room temperature before serving.
