      Deliciously fresh-tasting! Once the beets are cooked and cut, it's super quick to make. It gets better the longer it chills. I made this exactly as written, just adding a little chopped sweet onion. I was thinking that goat milk fets would be nice to crumble on top. All beet lovers should try this. Thanx for sharing!

      Deelish! I'm so glad I love beets! And this is a wonderful salad to add to my roster of great beet recipes! I did use just a skoosh more garlic. For our taste buds, the cilantro was spot on! Thnx for sharing your recipe, Engrossed. Made for the French Forum Herb of the Month tag game.

      I liked this a lot. I made it exactly as written except for omitting the cilantro as DD doesn't like it. If making this for myself only I will definitely include it.
