Pickled beets were a point of contention between my mother and me, but I think we would have agreed on this fresher version.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°. Divide beets between 2 large pieces of heavy-duty aluminum foil; drizzle with balsamic vinaigrette, and sprinkle with desired amount of salt and pepper. Seal foil, making 2 loose packets.

Step 2

Bake at 400° for 45 to 55 minutes until fork-tender.

Step 3

Let cool 1 hour in packets, reserving accumulated liquid.

Step 4

Bake walnuts at 400° in a single layer in a shallow pan 8 to 10 minutes or until toasted and fragrant.

Step 5

Peel beets, and cut into slices or wedges. Arrange beets on a serving platter or in a bowl. Drizzle with reserved liquid, and sprinkle with walnuts. Garnish, if desired.

First time to prepare beets and this recipe was easy and very good. It adds a little something extra to the table and the color is beautiful.
