A Heart-Healthy Vegetable Recipe
- 6 medium-sized beets
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- Salt and pepper to taste
Wash beets, trim off green tops, but do not peel. Boil until tender, about 30-45 minutes. Run cold water over the boiled beets, and when cool enough to handle, slip off the skins. Slice the beets and toss with the olive oil, vinegar, garlic, salt, and pepper.
Makes 6 servings.
