Place beets in a 8 - 10 quart pot and cover with water. Bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Cook on rolling boil until beets are tender enough to pierce with a fork - 1 to 2 hours.
Remove beets from water and cool slightly. Dice cooked beets. Beets can be frozen at this point.
Reserve 1/2 cup of cooking water and combine with rest of dressing ingredients.
Place beets into a serving bowl. Add diced red onion.
Pour dressing ingredients over beets. Toss gently until well combined.
For best results, refrigerate overnight. Bring to room temperature before serving.
