These zesty beets make for a fun snack or side for any meal! If you like beets, you're going to love this recipe!



  • 4 medium fresh beetsZesty beets served on a plate, garnished with chives.
  • 2 teaspoons margarine or butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon prepared horseradish
  • 1/4 teaspoon prepared mustard
  • 1/8 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chives, thinly sliced


  1. Cook beets with the skin on since the pigment is very water soluble. If greens are attached to beets, remove all but 1-1/2 inches of the stems, reserve greens for another use. Do not remove tail. Scrub beets thoroughly. Put beets in pan, cover with boiling water, cover with lid; reduce heat after beets start to boil. Cook 30 to 45 minutes depending on the size of the beets. Test for doneness by pricking only one beet with a knife. Beets are done with knife slips easily into the beet. Cool slightly, then peel. Slice beets.
  2. Combine remaining ingredients, except chives, and add to beets. Toss to coat. Sprinkle with chives.
