Golden beets have a milder flavor than red beets. This recipe helps to highlight the wonderful flavor. You might even confuse your guests, because they look very similar to peaches, but taste way different.
- 1 lb. golden beets
- 2 T. dark brown sugar
- 2 T. olive oil
- 3 T. balsamic vinegar
- Begin by cleaning the beets and cutting off the tops.
- Place beets on a baking sheet and roast in a 375° oven until fork tender, about 1 to 1½ hours, depending on the size of the beets.
- Cool the beets and slip skins off when the beets can be handled. Cut in ½-inch pieces.
- Combine the remaining ingredients and toss with the beets. Serve immediately.
