Marinated Ginger Beets

Marinated beets are a delicious way to enjoy beets. Let them rest for two or three hours or overnight so they can absorb the flavors of the marinade. Then toss them into salads, or serve as a cold side dish. My favorite way of eating marinated beets is in my Rainbow Burger, which isn't a burger at all, it's a vegetable sandwich that will change the way you think about veggies! I've converted many a carnivore with this delicious recipe.
While this recipe may take some time before it is ready to eat, it is really easy to make and requires little effort. It will keep about a week in your fridge.
