Chunky Beets and Icy Red Onions

DSC_0027

Simple salad that makes a great lunch, side dish or appetizer. If I have the time, I bake my beets covered with aluminum foil with a splash of water, for around 40 minutes or until they are soft. If I don’t have time, just add some water and place them in the microwave for a few minutes or until they are soft.
