People who proclaim not to like beets are always surprised that they love these. I adore beets, especially when cold and pickled. This recipe is well balanced, not too acidic, not too sweet, and with a nice dill flavor, but not overwhelmingly so. The beets are great as a side dish, on salads, or eaten as a snack, as I do often. I always have a jar in the fridge for munching.
