Had golden beets when I was in Portland a couple years ago, and I finally found a source for them in my area (at Whole Foods). This was fantastic and gourmet-like in its presentation, huge hit. Served with grilled lemon oregano chicken breasts, mango salsa couscous, and chocolate mousse for dessert.
