Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 lb assorted-color beets (about 6 medium)
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh tarragon leaves
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange peel
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Steps

  • 1
    Remove and discard beet greens. Leave root and 1-inch stem on beets; scrub with brush. Place beets in large microwavable bowl; cover with 3 layers of damp microwavable paper towels. Microwave on High 10 to 12 minutes or until tender. Place beets in ice water; let stand 5 minutes. Drain. Remove root; peel and cut beets into thin wedges.
  • 2
    In medium bowl, stir together remaining ingredients. Add beet wedges; toss to coat.

  • The beets are cooked in the microwave for a time-saving measure, but they can also be roasted, baked or boiled.
