1/4 red onion (thinly sliced)
juice of 1 lemon
juice of 1/4 lime
3 cloves garlic (minced)
1 tsp. cumin
4 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
fill a large pot with cold water and add in the beets. bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer. simmer the beets in the water for about 1 hour, or until they are fork tender.
in a medium size bowl whisk in the lemon juice, lime juice, garlic, cumin, and olive oil and set aside.
when beets are tender. cool a bit, and then peal. cut into bit size pieces and mix with the dressing and the red inion . place into the fridge for about 3 hours to serve cold. if chilled over night the olive oil may solidify a bit. if so, then just pop it into the microwave for about 30 seconds, and mix around.
