Beeten down and tossed around

This is one of "Genius's" creations. To you it may just seem like a spinach and beet salad but from the comments that have been made it became a favorite repeat to our guests. Recently, some one even called to ask for the recipe. It definitely had enough hype to make it "blog worthy" so I want you to either try it, make it, love it or hate it.

3 lg. beets
Marinated in love

Slice the beets into rounds, about 1/4" inch thick. Generously toss them in olive oil and balsamic vinegar according to taste. Add chopped herbs like cilantro, parsley and basil (any will do, that's just what we usually have) Add 3 cloves garlic and sprinkle with salt and pepper also according to taste. Keep in mind that this is also the dressing so you want to have extra so don't hold back.

1 bag spinach
Tossed with onions and feta

Toss together and place on the grill, keeping the marinade in the bowl. Grill for about 15 minutes or until tender and place on a cutting board. Cut the beets into strips as soon as they are cool enough to handle (you will need them to wilt the spinach) Meanwhile add the spinach, crumbled feta and sliced red onions to the bowl with marinade, add the beets with any accumulated juices and toss.

Toss around, hope.
