Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Place beets in a shallow pan.

  • Roast beets in the preheated oven until tender, about 1 hour. Remove pan from oven and cool beets until easily handled, at least 15 minutes.

  • Peel beets and cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices.

  • Beat balsamic vinegar, honey, and red wine vinegar together with a whisk in a bowl until dressing is smooth.

  • Mix beets and onion in a bowl. Drizzle dressing over beet mixture and toss to coat; refrigerate until chilled, about 1 hour.

Cook's Note:

This could be made with canned beets but fresh are best.

Six medium beets can be used in place of the 12 small beets.

I had leftover beets roasted in olive oil, thyme and salt and pepper (I roasted too many for Borscht). From there I followed the recipe exactly. Man these are amazing. It's a week later and I can't get enough. I will be making this recipe for everyone! Read More

I used this recipe as a starting point for roasting and pickling golden beets. Besides the beets I changed the balsamic and wine vinegar to the white variety. Perfect! Read More

I didn t have the time I would have liked to let the beets and brine come together and found this recipe. It was a great substitute that didn t take days to properly pickle the beets Read More
