The Hard to Beat Those Beets Recipe
Do you like pickled beets? I’m a fan of beets in any form, however this recipe is nothing like pickled beets and it’s a favorite of my husband and I.
Adding Goat Cheese and Nuts does increase the calories but both also have many health benefits. At only 88 calories a serving, I’ll be surprised if you don’t love this recipe.
