Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    6 Roasted Beets; skinned and cubed
    1/4 cup Pistachios
    2 Cloves Garlic
    2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
    2 Tablespoons Lemon Juice
    1 teaspoon Pomegranate Syrup
    salt to taste

Directions

Preheat Oven to 375

Scrub the beets very well then cut off both ends (top and bottom).

Place beets on a piece of foil on a cookie sheet. Drizzle with olive oil then cover with another piece of foil and seal edges.

When cool enough to handle the skins should slip right off of the beets.

Cube the beets into uniform sizes.

FOR THE DRESSING:

Place Pistachios, Garlic, Olive Oil, Lemon Juice and Pomegranate Syrup in small food processor or blender and pulse until smooth.

Toss Beets in the dressing then add salt to taste.
