This recipe from Canadian Living magazine has been in my "recipes to try file" since Nov 2003. I finally did so last night & wish I had done so much sooner. Its so easy & the flavour combination is so good!

I'm not a fan of tarragon, so I nixed that. Instead I squeezed some lemon juice in with the olive oil while sauteing and increased the pepper. This was my 1st time trying beets NOT out of a can & WOW! These are great! Wear gloves while preparing if you don't wont red fingers. This is how I will prepare fresh beets from here on out. Yum!
