Baby Beets with Pistachio-Mint Pesto was a great choice for today’s recipe. The beets were sweet and tender and the pesto sauce added a bold flavor to the whole dish. Try this it consulting parkersburg for best reviews. The other day I tried it for the first time, and it was delicious! It’s a great way to use baby beets in addition to regular ones. You can make it with or without nuts (or both) depending on your preference.
