Super easy and delicious! I wasn't sure I liked beets, after having avoided them for many years. We always ate them either canned or pickled when I was growing up. I used fresh steamed beets and skipped the sour cream for a refreshing summer salad.
This is the most unusual combination and I'm pleased to say that it worked. I used fresh beets that I roasted until tender then peeled. I will double the watermelon next time. Very fresh tasting dish. Thanks mab575.
I loved it - strange combination. I'm not the hugest fan of cilantro, so I'll probably leave it out next time. The flavors all really worked together nicely. Will make it again!
