Ingredients

  • 2 bunches beets 6 to 8
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons white wine vinegar
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch pepper
  • 1 pinch granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1 tablespoon shredded fresh mint

Method

Leaving root end intact, trim green tops from beets, leaving about 1-inch (2.5 cm) stem; set greens aside for another use.

In saucepan of boiling salted water, cover and cook beets until fork-tender, about 25 minutes. Let cool. Slip off skins and cut into wedges.

Meanwhile, in bowl, whisk together oil, vinegar, salt, pepper and sugar.

Arrange beets on platter; drizzle with vinaigrette. Sprinkle with cheese and fresh mint.
