Beet Salad
Ingredients:
  • 2 pounds of fresh red beets leaves/stalks removed or 2 cans of sliced beets (discard liquid)
  • 2 -3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup of extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup of red wine vinegar
  • Salt and pepper to taste
Preparation:

If using fresh beets: Remove leaves, leaving about an inch of stem, and don’t cut the taproot. Wash gently (don’t break the skin), and place in a pot of cold water to cover. Bring to a boil and cook until done (firm but cooked, about 40-50 minutes). Drain the beets, cool under running cold water, and remove skin with fingers. Slice.

Combine beets, garlic, oil, and vinegar in a bowl and toss. Add salt and pepper to taste, and refrigerate covered for several hours before serving.

Enjoy!
