Beets Vinaigrette & Savory Zucchini Muffin

Beets Vinaigrette


1 lb beets

¼ cup vinegar (your choice—cider, wine, herbed)

1/5 cup olive oil

½ tsp salt

½ tsp Dijon mustard


Remove greens from beets, leaving ½ inch stems.  Boil beets until tender when pierced with a fork.  Slip skins and stems off under running water.  Dice beets into bite-sized pieces.  Combine vinegar, olive oil, salt, and mustard and shake well.  Pour enough over the beets to just moisten them, and stir.  Save remaining dressing and beet greens for another use.

Savory Zucchini Muffins


2 eggs

¾ cup milk (fat free ok)

2/3 cup vegetable oil

2 cups flour

¼ cup sugar

1 Tablespoon baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

2 cups shredded zucchini

4 Tablespoons dried basil

6 Tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Beat eggs in bowl; stir in milk and oil.  Combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.  Mix dry ingredients into egg mixture, just until moistened.  Batter should not be completely smooth.  Gently mix in zucchini, basil and cheese.  Fill greased muffin cups about ¾ full.  Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until browned on top.  Remove from pan.
