Here is a colorful and tasty treat with lots of different flavors. A great way to enjoy beets!
3 medium beets
1 1/2 T freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 T apple cider vinegar
1 T apple juice concentrate
1 tsp stone-ground mustard
1/2 tsp dried dill weed
Wash and peel the beets. Cut each beet in half, and each half into four wedges. To prevent staining your counter top, place a dark colored towel or paper towels under your cutting board.
Steam the beets over boiling water until tender when pierced with a fork, 15 to 20 minutes.
Combine the lemon juice, vinegar, apple juice concentrate, mustard, and dill weed in a serving bowl. Add beets and toss to mix. Serve hot or cold.
Stored in a covered container in the refrigerator, leftover Hot or Cold Beet Salad will keep for up to 3 days.
