This is a useful product when you want a salad that will not compete with a more robustly flavored main dish or overpower a mild main dish. It's also nice if you're serving several one-veg salads of different colors (carrot, tomato, etc.) instead of a tossed salad. The beets are gently flavored and I did not find them acidic. Very good consistency, neither crunchy nor soft. The slices of beet are small in diameter and look attractive. Keep in mind that it’s a small jar with less than a cup of sliced beets.
