The recipe is a crowd pleaser (unless your company hates beets!) My only frustration was that the roasting process took so much longer than the recipe stated, despite the fact that I used small beets. I ended up having to microwave them in order to complete the recipe for our dinner. It was at this point that I decided to never again attempt to roast beets, and vowed to peel them BEFORE cooking. The flavors of this dish are perfect. The vinegar is the surprise ingredient. Will definitely make again.
