This is a simple but elegant dish of beets tossed with a tangy garlic vinaigrette dressing. Feel free to use more than the two cloves of garlic--I do!

Directions

  1. Wash the beets and boil until tender, about 45 minutes (or 20 minutes in a pressure cooker). Remove the skins by running cold water over the boiled beets, and then slipping of their skins. Slice the beets and toss with the olive oil, vinegar, garlic, and salt.

Have made this time and again. We all love it. I add more garlic as we are garlic lovers. Was always using fresh beets. For the heck of it I used drained canned sliced beets and it was excellent. Never would have believed it.

These even go over well with non-beet people. Savory and sweet at the same time. Makes good use of a somewhat neglected veggie.

I made this for a summer family picnic. It was a hit even with the kids! It was nice to have a new idea! We used canned beets, it kept the prep time down.
