Kraft Kitchens Tips

Serving Suggestion
Enjoy this serving of salad at a summer get-together along with your favorite grilled lean meat.
How to Roast Beets
Gently wash beets; prick in several places with fork. Place beets in center of large sheet of foil. Drizzle with 1/4 cup KRAFT Italian Dressing. Fold up sides of foil to enclose beets; seal packet, leaving room for heat circulation inside. Bake at 400°F for 45 min. or until beets are tender. Open foil; let beets stand in foil until cooled. To peel, gently rub skins of beets with cloth or paper towel until skins are removed.
Creative Leftovers
Cooked beet greens make a delicious side dish. Blanch the greens for 10 min. in boiling salted water. Drain greens well, then add to a large skillet with a little olive oil; cook and stir on medium heat 15 min. or until greens are tender.
