Pretty in Pink Beet Side Dish

I love serving this dish to brighten my dinner table. It is especially nice to serve when there is not as much variety in my harvests and the colours of the garden have faded. It is so simple to prepare that it is hardly worth writing it as a recipe, except to be a reminder to make it.
