Baby Beets- delicious cold!

A quick and cool recipe for your beets. Wash well and quarter beets. Steam until tender. Allow to cool and skin will come off very easily.

Now there are a few ways I enjoy fixing them from this point:

  • thinly slice 1/2 a Vidalia onion t, lay in bottom of glass bowl, cover with raspberry balsamic vinegar, slice peeled beets on top, cover with lid, shake and refrigerate at least 2 hours but overnight is better. Sprinkle with dill and toasted walnuts when serving.
  • stir 1/2 cup of sour cream in beets and onions – the color will be beautiful! And the flavor is wonderful- I had beet salad made this way in Ireland.
  • juice one or two lemons and use lemon juice instead of vinegar as your ‘pickling’ liquid (when I do this I don’t use onions, but you can)
