The secret to preparing this salad is cooking the beets – you can either roast or boil them.
Roasting the beets:
Place the beets on the baking sheet and roast them at 400 F for one hour or until you can easily pierce them with a fork.
Boiling the beets:
Place the beets in a pot; make sure the beets are covered with water. Boil the beets until you can easily pierce them with a fork.
Beets take a long time to cook, but they are so worth it!
