I know people use them but why. Using regular letuce is bad enough, beets are even worse.

There a lot of recipes sugesting to saute them, with onions, garlic, seasoning, some balsamik vinegar sounds good.

Make sure to wash them well and check, probably have to soak it, just like letuce they may have bugs.

I do believe the tops and stem are good for compost...

Not having tried them before, I'll give you the benefit of the doubt, particularly since I love red wine vinegrette on greens such as spinach, mustard and kale even though I can't have them any more. (No vitamin K greens while taking warfrin - ugh!)

I'm sorry about the Warfarin. Be ok and take care.

Don't know about the greens Dan, but curious about your salad recipe.
I just posted one in the salad section...
