Made as a side dish for Thanksgiving. I already had all the traditional sides and I was looking for something lighter, with lots of color, with seasonal produce. This hit the mark. I followed suggestion to use the smallest beets you can find and I also used the suggestion to roast the beets and potatoes in the oven. I made a day ahead and thought it was ok. I added a splash of balsamic to try to flavor it up. Tasted the next day and it was excellent! I think you need to make it 1 - 2 days in advance to allow the flavors to blend. Lots of positive feedback from guests. My sister-in-law asked to take home some of the extras.
I would not use this as the only side as some people are afraid to try beets (their loss!) , but its a great dish when you are planning to have several side dish choices. It does take lots of prep, but the prep is way in advance, it looks pretty, tastes great, and doesn't need oven space the day of the party. It's too much prep for me to make as jut a regular meal but I will make this again for a party side dish.
