      Lovely side dish! I used my canned beets, so I had this done really quick. The orange is a VERY good compliment to the beets. I added 1 teaspoon sugar to get a sweet tart taste. I used toasted sliced almonds. Thanks for posting this!

      We love beets and this is a good recipe. I peeled the beets before cooking them, they were very large beets and would have taken forever to cook.. I left out the almonds it would have been a nice final touch (Iforgot to buy them) Thanks Dorothy for another winner

      Oooh, this is so delicious! I've made it over and over again, sometimes topped with chopped pecans, or walnuts, but I love to use pistachios the most of all, the deep red really sets off the bright green of the chopped nuts... Yum!!!
