This was my dinner with my pickled beets on top of my salad with a basic balsamic vinegar and oil:Pickled Beets
2-3lbs of beets
2 cps water
2cps white distilled vinegar
salt to taste
1. Boil beets (almost like you would potatoes) until tender. Drain beets. Add vinegar, water, sugar and salt. Boil until salt is dissolved.
2. Peel beets as the brine warms up. (HINT: It is easier to peel with a spoon...I know that sounds weird, but it pulls it right up). Slice the beets and add to brine.
