Bring to a boil then cook for about 15 minutes, until tender. Drain, peel, and cube. Add beets to a medium mixing bowl and add the cilantro, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, salt &pepper. Cover and place in fridge to cool. The chopped onions are the last ingredient to go in the salad to give it that crunchy element. Serve alone in a bowl or over sliced toasted crostini as bruschetta.
