I love beets :)
Here's my favorite salad with them
Oh..and the greens? use them like Swiss Chard greens, they are a close 
cousin...same earthy taste..
You can leave out the  Olive oil here..or, try adding a little, tsp at a 
Moroccan Beet Salad

2 bunches Beets - or 6 medium loose Beets
1 Red Onion - minced
 Extra Virgin Olive Oil (optional) 
1/2 Cup chopped Cilantro  
1 Teaspoon Cumin - ground
1 to 2 Lemons - Juiced
Salt to taste

1. Remove greens by breaking off, leaving a little on the top, and either 
discard or save Greens and cook like chard some other time.  Cook whole Beets 
with water brings to a boil and cook over medium heat until tender, 
approximately 1-hour.
2. Rinse cooked Beets under cold water and remove skins.
3. Dice or slice Beets into pleasing shapes.
4. Mix with the rest of ingredients and place in the refrigerator for at 
least 1 hour to blend flavors.  Adjust salt and Lemon just before serving.
