Beet Salad

Sometimes, using a little help from the store can mean the difference between ordering takeout and making a home-cooked meal. The introduction of precooked fresh beets to the produce section is a boon to busy home cooks; no longer does anyone have to settle for canned beets when in a hurry. This quick and easy, delicious salad is a healthy starter for busy weeknights.
