I never used to eat beets because I didn't know what they tasted like, they're funny looking and I didn't know what to do with them. That was until my sister made me this salad and my opinion of beets changed forever. Beets have a nice earthy flavor, and is very sweet unlike most of its vegetable friends. It also has the prettiest color which just makes any dish look fun and exciting. This is an easy recipe which I hope will change your opinion of beets too.
