    Default Do you like beets?

    I found this recipe on the net and tried it yesterday. If you like beets, this is delicious.

    Beet Salad with Almonds, Feta cheese and Chives


    Ingredients
    1 1/2 pounds beets - red, yellow, the candy-striped Chioggia, or a mixture
    1/4 cup slivered almonds, roasted
    2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    1 tablespoon minced fresh chives
    1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
    1/8 teaspoon kosher salt or sea salt
    2 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
    A few whole chives for garnish

    Directions
    Place beets in a medium pot and cover with water. Cover, bring to a boil, and cook 15 to 25 minutes, until a beet is easily pierced with a fork. Drain, let cool, and use a paring knife and fingers to slide off skins.
    Dice beets and place in a large salad bowl. Add almonds, olive oil, chives, lemon juice and salt, and toss gently. Sprinkle with feta, lay whole chives across salad as garnish, and serve.

    It is! When I made it, I had to use dried chives because I didn't have fresh ones, but it was excellent anyways.

    I used to like beets as a kid, but to me they taste like purple dirt balls...lol.
    That recipe sounds good for people that like them though.
