At this time of year when you are trying to keep the kitchen cool, first boil the beets until tender or until a knife inserted into the largest beat slips in easily. When done run under cool water and you can peel skin off easily. Refill the pot you used and steam the greens just till tender (5 to 8 minutes). Mix all and then dress with remaining ingredients. Easy, healthy and very good. I've been doing beets this way for years. You can also skip the ingredients shown, except for sliced onions and top with greek garlic and yogurt sauce. (strain yogurt for 30 minutes with 2 tablespoons of grated cucumber, skin on,and 1 or 2 large garlic cloves, mix all and use on steamed beats.) If you make extra sauce you can use it on other veggies, grilled eggplant, grilled zucchini, etc.
