Boil 3-4 beets - Do NOT peel the beets (you can also bake them for about 90 min. at 350 but I haven't tried that yet) until tender. The peel will just slip off. Cool and cut as you like (I julienned). Add salt, pepper about 1tsp sugar, 3-4 TBS. vegetable oil and 2 TBS. vinegar.
I chopped some parsley for garmish.
