Beet Carpaccio with Mint Vinaigrette
I usually serve this as an appetizer, so the number of servings is dependent on what else is being served. Served alongside other items, this has been enjoyed by 8 to 10, whereas with it as the only appetizer then 6 is more realistic.
To prep the beets, separate the beetroot from the green tops leaving about 1/2- inch of the stalk. The root end can stay intact. Scrub the outside of the beets.
The cooking time will depend on the size of beets used. Larger beets will require a longer steam time.
