Great recipe. I served it with a pork roast and it was awesome. Definitly serve at room temperature. I tasted it cold and thought it's alright but when I had it later after sitting out it was ALRIGHT!!!

Nice and refreshing. I put the mustard, sugar, and vinegar w/out boiling it (i forgot to do that part) & it still came out very nice. Very refreshing but not out of this world.

Thank you for this fantastic recipe. Made it for a family gathering and it's already been requested for the next.

As easy as it gets (just have to remember to factor in the 4-6 hours of marinating time) and tastes fantastic.

This was just the "pickled" beet recipe I was looking for. So easy and so good. Only change was to substitute Splenda for sugar. Excellent!

Easy, great reviews and pretty too. Easy enough for a family dinner and special enough for company. It's a keeper. Sliced canned beets were all I had on hand & worked well chopped.

Delicious!! . I used lemon flavored redwine vinegar in place of the white wine vinegar though :).
