I adapted this recipe which was handed out free at my local farmer's market. The original recipe was developed by Lindsey Thompson, a member of the Downtown Walla Wall (WA) Farmer's Market.

I received a copy of Lindsey's original recipe from a local farmer's market & made this salad a couple weeks ago, and we all loved this salad! I also made the change that you did by cooking the beets before peeling....much easier method to cook them before peeling. I simply peeled them off by rubbing the beets with my hands. Thanks for sharing your adaptation online so I could easily share the recipe weblink with friends.
