    I got this recipe for a cookbook "Greek Cooking for the Gods". I'm a beet lover and really enjoy this. The time does not include the chill time.

      I used fresh red beets for this. It's a very simple side salad. I made this as written and I thought it was very good, but I could have gone for some chopped fresh herbs over tip for some extra flavor. Maybe also some crumbled feta? Thanx for sharing!

      Made 1/2 this amount because we were having another salad, too. This is the basic way we serve beets in Greece (along with their sauteed or boiled greens), and I think it is simply delicious.
