Nonnas pickled beets

Looking for a quick side tonight?

This strata of pickled beets takes about 10 minutes if you purchase pre- cooked whole beets or canned will work too.

INGREDIENTS:

2 bunches of beets or 3 cans of cooked beets
2-3 large garlic cloves thinly sliced
4-5 mint leaves
Red wine vinegar
A few drops of olive oil
A few tbsp bread crumbs

PREP:

Once boiled, if you choose fresh beets let them cool. Peel them and slice into 1/4 inch disks.
Chiffonade your mint leaves. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yJEQFgfv7iw

In a serving dish (2-3 inches deep) lay down the first layer of beets. Drizzle generously with red wine vinegar and a few drops of olive oil. Add sliced garlic, mint and some bread crumbs to coat. Repeat until all beets are done.
Cover and refrigerate. Serve at room temperature.
