The reviewer gave this recipe 3 stars. This recipe averages a 4.3 star rating. I think this is a good recipe, but even though I like all the ingredients, I did not care for the salad. I chose to reduce the oil to 1/3 cup, & used rice vinegar in place of white wine vinegar because that is what I had on hand. I would increase the amount of vinegar & lemon juice combined, to equal the amount of oil. I would recommend reducing the amount of thyme by half, especially if marinating overnight/leftovers, unless you really like a strong thyme flavor. When baking the beets I also recommend standing them on the stem end to bake, because I found it difficult to peel them & see where the peel was,when baked on whatever surface landed on the pan. This may be due to using larger beets which had to bake longer. I'm disappointed that I didn't like the finished salad better than I did. Was this review helpful? [ YES ]
