This recipe is from the Sept. 16, 2008 edition of the "Living" section of our local newspaper, "The Democrat & Chronicle". DH and I were blessed with an abundance of beets in our vegetable garden this year and have been searching for different ways to use them. I thought this recipe sounded interesting. I have not made this yet but have plans for the near future.

This is a good recipe and easy to make, but for person preference, next time I would used pickled beets. Thanks for the recipe.

We adore this salad. The combination of the sweet, sour and salty is just perfect. We love fresh beets anyway and this was a great way to broaden our repertoire.

Bought fresh beets at the Farmer's Market and wanted to make a beet salad like those in high-end restaurants. This recipe was exactly what we were looking for. I followed Chef Lee's advice and boiled the beets first so the skins would slide right off. Perfection.
