Top Review by BonnieZ

This was a delightful side dish, with the balsamic/lemon/sugar forming a beautiful glaze for the beets and apples. I paired this with Herb & Garlic roast Pork Tenderloin #116612 by Marie and it was the perfect pairing. Thank you Miller for another outstanding recipe. Your legacy lives on, and may you rest in peace.
