    Beets and mint might seem to be an odd coupling, but it works surprisingly well. This salad is sweet yet refreshing.

      The blend of flavors is amazingly delicious. I cheated and cubed and boiled the beets rather than baking. It worked! I will make this again and again. Beautiful presentation. Would look great on a Christmas table. A+, thanks Geema!
