Dancer, What a delightful and easy to make side dish. I made one change ...I used Russian dressing in place of balsamic vinegar. My family loved this unusual recipe. It was like Harvard beets... with an attitude! Thanks for posting. Barb

Since we grow beets in the garden, I'm always looking for new & different recipes - this will be served time & time again! I roasted the beets in the oven & used vidalia onions. Thanx Dancer!
