Can you use canned beets for this recipe?

I have some cans I've been needing to use, and I was wondering I could use them on this!

Or how about this chocolate beet cake - well tested, well loved, and best of all, reliable: https://www.marthastewart.com/857644/chocolate-beet-cake ? ;o)

The canned beets will taste fine, but probably just be a little softer than those cooked from raw.
Another use for beets is pancakes. Union Square restaurant has a great recipe for them, topped with feta. Serve with a cold lager or white wine.
So similar taste combination to this dish you want to make.

You certainly can, but it won’t be quite as tasty. The recipe includes a nice dressing, so that will help. ;o)
