I made this for dinner on Friday night. It was very tasty and I ate most of it myself. Will definitely make this again.

The taste of the vinegar was quite strong for me. I liked the combination of flavours but would have liked something a bit more subdued.

This was really good! The flavor of the beet greens combined with the caramelized onions and balsamic vinegar was superb, but I could barely taste the thyme and I couldn't taste the rosemary or the garlic at all, so next time I will probably double them. Overall, though, definitely a great greens recipe that I'll be making again and again.
