Garlicky beet salad


3 large beets

Olive oil

6 garlic cloves, peeled and minced

3 T. light mayonnaise

Salt and pepper, to taste


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Wash beets and trim off greens. Lightly coat each beet with olive oil then wrap in aluminum foil. Place the foil-wrapped beets in the hot oven until cooked through, about 45 to 60 minutes. Remove beets from the oven and allow them to cool. When they are slightly cool, use a sharp paring knife to slip off the beet skins. Use a cheese grater to grate beets into a small bowl. Add mayonnaise, garlic, salt and pepper to the shredded beet mixture, stir well and chill. Serves 4.
