I have been buying refrigerator beets. They are prepared and ready to use and they freeze well. I have been trying new recipes with beets and tried to find a tomato beet recipe but could not find anything. So, I came up with this recipe and I love it.
One of my favorite spice blends is Tuscan Sunset from Penzeys spices.
I add onions, garlic, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, basil, olive oil, salt, pepper, and Tuscan Sunset season blend.
Four small beets and a cup of grape tomatoes or a blend of small tomatoes.
