My husband and I love beets! (Our kids are learning to love them too!)
We love them roasted.
We love them pickled.
And we especially love them served simply with balsamic vinegar and olive oil. Yum!
Beets with Balsamic Vinegar and Olive Oil
1 bunch beets
1 T white vinegar
2 T balsamic vinegar
2 T extra virgin olive oil
salt & pepper to taste
1) Cut leaves from beets leaving about 1 inch of the stems attached.
4) Remove beets from water and place on cutting board to cool.
5) Once cool, cut off root end and leaf end. Remove peels. They should slip off easily, but if they don’t just use a pairing knife to cut them off. Aren’t they beautiful?
7) Add balsamic vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper. Toss to coat. Serve chilled or room temperature.
What’s your favorite way to serve beets?
