  1. Wash the beets and boil until tender, about 45 minutes (or 20 minutes in a pressure cooker). Remove the skins by running cold water over the boiled beets, and then slipping of their skins. Slice the beets and toss with the olive oil, vinegar, garlic, and salt.

Have made this time and again. We all love it. I add more garlic as we are garlic lovers. Was always using fresh beets. For the heck of it I used drained canned sliced beets and it was excellent. Never would have believed it.

We didn't care for this recipe at all.

These even go over well with non-beet people. Savory and sweet at the same time. Makes good use of a somewhat neglected veggie.

I made this for a summer family picnic. It was a hit even with the kids! It was nice to have a new idea! We used canned beets, it kept the prep time down.

Let me first say that I am not a big fan of beets. BUT...this actually made them o.k., and my husband really loved them. I took your advice to add more garlic {selfishly I thought it would overpower the beet flavor}, and it created a nice taste combination. Thanks for a beet recipe that I can live with and my husband just adores.

I love beets in salads, but had never used them as a side dish, as my husband hates them. I tried this recipe, and it's pretty good. Even my 4 year old (who is a veggie lover like her mom) ate it up, and she's not big on garlic. Of course, hubby and other two kids wouldn't even try it. Their loss. Will be using again, but prefer the beets on my salad.

I found this combination wonderfully delicious. It was just right. If you eat beets... this is good and simple.

My daughter loves this. I pressure cooked the beets for 12-20 minutes depending on size.
