DELICIOUS! These are so yummy. I used half the amount of sugar because of the natural sweetness of the beets. The heat from the Dijon, the acidity of the vinegar & lemon, and the earthiness of the beets make a divine combination. Can't wait to see how good these are tomorrow after marinating overnight. Thanks for the awesomely addicting recipe!

Neither my husband nor I enjoyed these- and we love beets. For me, it was the vinegar-y taste that did me in.

these were delicious! they made a beautiful and tasty dinner salad - we lay the beets on a bed of spinach and arugula, drizzled with the extra sauce, and topped with shaved parmesan and walnuts. will definitely make this again!

Yum! I've always wanted to do something with beets, and now I know what! These were so good on their own, but even better over a nice salad. The sweet/sour juice drips onto the lettuce and adds to the salad dressing. I'll put them over spinach next time. Thanks!

The flavor of these beets is so very good. A great sweet-sour combination. I make Harvard beets a lot and we liked these better. I served them warm along side broiled chicken breasts. A definite keeper! Thank you MaeEast!!

Three thumbs up! Really a delightful combination of sweet and sour taste. Went very well with our grilled sword fish. Thanks.

I decreased the sugar by 1/2. I really enjoyed the beets, One time I doubled the marinade ( still decreasing the sugar). Both were wonderful. I like the recipe better the next day, I prefer this with something light like fish or chicken. I think beef is a bit heavy for it.

Five stars all around from this household! This is my newest favorite recipe for beets. I love how simple it is to prepare, but it really packs a punch in terms of flavor. I love the tangy sweet and sour taste. I used about a pound of beets for this recipe. I will definitely make this recipe often, especially this time of year when I have lots of beets to go around. Thank you for sharing!
