I promised myself that this year I would prepare fresh beets -- not from a can. I know beets are not the most popular veggie, but I just love them. First it was canned harvard beets as a child, then canned pickled beets as I grew older. They are fabulous in a salad, and provide so much color. Soooooooo, last week fresh beets were on sale, and I decided to take the plunge. For this foray into unchartered waters, I picked chia's recipe, and I really enjoyed making a recipe with fresh beets. Easy peasy! The cumin flavor is not too strong, but provides a nice subtle reminder that these are not your typical beets from a can.

This salad is DELICIOUS. I normally eat beets with salt, vinegar and olive oil. This is a wonderful vaiation and I only make beet salad this way now. Thanks for sharing, Chia.

Delighted with this recipe. I had never ventured to cook fresh beets before. Cooked in my pressure cooker, cooled, cut up and added the recipe ingredients. Chilled in the fridge and gets better as each day passes.

Excellent and easy!! The cumin adds a great flavor. You might want to use golden beets. They have the same taste, but without all the RED.

Delicious salad! My husband also loved it. I added a 14 oz. can of madarian oranges, drained, and had to use garlic powder as I just used up my last fresh garlic. Wonderful taste, pretty color, definitely a keeper.
