This is a perfect dish for a holiday meal. It is so refreshing, fresh, and light. Beets are super easy to roast this way. The balsamic vinaigrette marinade provides great flavor while not hiding the taste of beets. Definitely recommend the addition of the figs, or another dried fruit for an extra burst of sweet flavor!

I love anything with fresh beets! However on the roasting part above: AFTER THE beets are cooked/roasted: I like to use a dry paper towel and peel away the outer layer (the skin) - before serving.
