Beets....love them or hate them! It seems like everyone has strong feelings about beets. I guess it's just a vegetable without much middle ground.
We love them at our house. My daughter started her love with beets when she was little and tried to eat so many to see if she could turn her tinkle pink! Although she is long past the princess and pink stage, her love of beets has remained. We were all happy to see that beets arrived in the CSA box this week.
The favorite way to eat beets at our house is to grill them; however, that wasn't possible this week so I baked them in aluminum foil with a small amount of olive oil and salt and pepper. I had some greens in the fridge, so we had a salad with the beets and feta cheese. A drizzle of olive oil and balsamic vinegar completed this very simple but very delicious meal.
