You will really enjoy the naturally sweet flavor of the beets.
- 4 or 5 beets
- 1/4 cup cider vinegar
- 1 Tbsp sugar
- 1 Tbsp olive oil
- 1/2 tsp dry mustard
- Salt and pepper
- Remove greens from beets, cut beets to uniform sizes so they will cook evenly. Steam or boil around 30 minutes or until done. A fork easily inserted into the beet will tell you if the beets are done or not.
- Drain the beets, rinsing them in cold water. Use your fingers to slip the peels off of the beets. The peels should come off easily. Discard the peels. Slice the beets.
- Make the vinaigrette by combining the cider vinegar, sugar, olive oil, and dry mustard. Whisk ingredients together with a fork. The dry mustard will help to emulsify the vinaigrette. Add salt and pepper to taste.
- Combine beets and vinaigrette in a bowl and allow to marinate for a half hour at room temperature.
