Transfer to plate; cool. Rinse pan.

- Cut roots and stems from beets on plate.* Peel, halve and cut beets into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Add beet slices to apricot mixture; toss gently to coat. Transfer to warm serving dish. Garnish with additional apricot halves, if desired. Serve immediately with apricot halves.
