This is a special way to dress up beets. Paired with pineapple, they have a slightly sweet taste that has even people who don't usually like beets taking second helpings. -Bernice Morris, Marshfield, Missouri

"I love beets and this is a great addition using pineapple. I served it Thanksgiving and everyone raved about it. The only change I will make is to double the recipe next time."

"Made a variation of this for dinner tonight to accompany grilled pork tenderloin and baked potatoes. I had the pineapples in the fridge w/o a lot of juice so I added some juice from mandarine oranges and a little orange juice. It was a sweet tangy side to complete a delicious meal. Enjoy
