Beets - Hot or Cold, Minty Fresh

From ALFN Local Food Club

<p>My new favorite way to prepare beets&#8230;</p>
Source: The inspiration was a similar recipe I found on the internet for beet thinnings, but this much different (Entered by Katy Elliott)
Serves: I'll leave that to you - it depends on how many beets you steam

at least one lb chopped beets
one handful fresh parsley
one small handful fresh mint - any variety
one tablespoon olive oil
one teaspoon white vinegar
dash salt and pepper

Step by Step Instructions
  1. place chopped beets in the steamer and steam until tender - do not over cook.
  2. toss steamed chopped beets with parsley, mint, olive oil, vinegar, salt and pepper
  3. let sit for flavors to set in, may be eaten fresh and warm or refrigerated and eaten as salad - also makes a nice addition to fresh green salad.
