Im using the green part of the beets in a salad along with baby boc choy and romaine..

You can make something pink..... A fourth grader wrote me a recipe for a pink potato salad. You could make pink cole slaw, pink soup.

You could also make a scene. chew one up and then scream wildly that and spit up pulpy blood red beet from your mouth (sorry, hanging out with kids too much).

<looking>

I used to get a beet smoothie in GA. I think it was apple, beets and spirulina. It was the most god-awful color.

Well, you're already making salad--fresh grated beets in salad is my fave use for them!

Beets taste like dirt, basically. I like them, but many people don't.

Boil to soften your beets, then peel and slice them. Add 1/4 cup cider vinegar, 1TBSP sugar, little olive oil and a dash each dry mustard, salt and pepper. Chill in the fridge and presto! Pickled beets without the canning.

That was quite odd. Who knew beets were so hot right now?

There should be some sweetness - after all, beets are an important source of sugar.

(google sugar beet)

I love beets - I prefer them cooked, cooled, and then diced into a tangy salad.
