4-5 beetroot (with stalks and leaves)
1-2 clove garlic (finely chopped) (optional)
Wash the beet roots and the stalks very well under cold running water many times to remove any dirt.Cut the most bottom part of the beet but leave the stalks and upper leaves intact.Boil the beets for 35-45 minutes or until tender (depending on size), and allow them to cool in their own water.When cool enough to handle, peel the beet roots, and cut them in rounds or quarters.Cut the stems in half or thirds, depending on length.Place the beets and stems in a bowl and dress with the olive oil, vinegar, salt, and 1-2 tablespoons of the water that they were boiled in (and the garlic, if used) and mix well.
