mmm...I made this with beets from the garden. I pulled some young beets to use their greens for the salad. The colors are delightfully festive! The recipe is from my favorite veggie cookbook, Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone by Deborah Madison. If this cookbook isn't on your bookshelf, you must get it! The information about how to cook veggies to their best is worth the cover price, not to mention the recipes are all fantastic.
