Ingredients

1 lb  fresh whole beets
2 tbsp  fresh lemon juice
2 tsp  cider vinegar
1 tbsp  sesame seeds
2 tbsp  minced onion
1 tsp  sugar
1 pinch  salt and pepper
Directions
  1. Trim the stems of the beets to about an inch, scrub the beets, and place them in a pot with water to cover. Bring to a boil, and lower the heat, cover and simmer for 30 to 40 minutes, until tender and easily pierced with a sharp knife. Drain and rinse with cold water until cool enough to handle.
  2. Remove and discard the skins, which should slip off easily, and slice the beets into a bowl.
  3. Toss with the lemon juice, vinegar, sesame seeds, onions or scallions, and sugar. Add salt and pepper to taste. Chill thoroughly for about 30 minutes and serve
