      I had small beets so I roasted six of them. Also, I used 2 Tbsp OJ and 1 Tbsp lime juice since I realized too late that I was out of lemon juice. It worked nicely. I find that the pistachios and cayenne give this dish just the right kick. Nice job.

      I made this salad when I saw it in "Cooking Light" and loved it. I also roasted my beets, it was so easy and the presentation is beautiful, great for a dinner party.
