Beet Salad with Cumin, Lime, and Fresh Herbs

3 pounds beets

For the dressing:
3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
3 tablespoons lime juice
1 tablespoon honey (or to taste)
3 tablespoons olive oil

For the garnish:
fresh herbs like mint, cilantro, dill, etc.

Trim and wash beets, and leave whole if quite small (1 1/2 to 2 inches in diameter) or peel and coarsely chopped if larger.  Spread on a cookie sheet, toss with olive oil and roast in a 400 degree oven for 1 hour or until tender.  Cool beets, remove skins, and chop into bite sized pieces if roasted whole.  Combine dressing ingredients and pour over cool beets.  Toss well to coat.  Serve immediately or chill to marinate and serve later.  Top with fresh mint upon serving.  Beautiful and delicious!
