Using Up Those Beets

My CSA likes to give me beets.  Here's my favorite salad recipe to use up 3 cups of them at a time:

BEET AND FETA SALAD

Prepare ahead --
* 3 cups cooked, diced organic beets -- chilled
* 1 cup cooked, chopped organic leeks -- chilled

Combine beets and leeks with --
* 1 cup halve-sliced grapes (green or red)
* 1 cup diced organic cucumbers
* 1 cup basil/tomato-flavored crumbled feta cheese
* 3 tablespoons olive oil
* 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
* 2 tablespoons organic ground mustard seed
* 1 teaspoon salt
Pepper to taste

Serve chilled.
