DIRECTIONS

  • Prepare a charcoal fire or preheat a gas grill.
  • Brush the beats with olive oil and place over medium-low coals. Cook raw beats slowly over heat until they are easily pierced, 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
  • Remove from the barbecue, peel, then cut into thick slices.
  • Meanwhile, blend the dressing ingredients. Combine garlic, onion, tomato, cilantro, cumin, curry powder, vinegar and olive oil. Toss with the beets. Taste for seasoning.
  • Serve warm or at room temperature.
  • Note: Canned beets can be substituted. Either skip first two steps, or place beets on the grill for only about 5 minutes to pick up some of the smoky goodness. Sliced beets should probably not be put on the grill unless you line it with some aluminum foil.
