This was a nice change from your ordinary salad. The ingredient list said that the sugar was optional and I left it out since we like the tartness of vinegar. I bought beets for the first time just to make this and I was not disappointed. I did add a few mushrooms, croutons, and a sprinkle of parmesan to make it more colorful and appealing to my husband since he is not big on veggies but it really didn't add much flavor and was not necessary.

Very delicious. I thought it would be tangy with all the vinegar, but it was perfect. I let the beets sit in the marinade overnigt. I also added fresh mushrooms and parmasean cheese. This salad is awesome and very healthy.
