  • Karla, Cant believe you printed this recipe today. I just made it, but had a question. Do you chill the beets and onions or serve them warm. Also, it says to save the beet greens. What do you do with them?

    Hope all is well; hope to visit again soon!

  • Hello Janice, it is so great to hear from you. I serve the beets cold on this salad and the onions warm, it is entirely up to you and your personal preference. You can wash the beet greens and serve them in a salad.
    Enjoy!
