I tried a new beet salad recently that we really liked and I wanted to share it here. Rob planted beets in the garden this year and they have done well. I am hoping he will plant another crop for this fall. We both really like them and DD Nora has learned to like them recently, as has her little daughter Della. Della seems to like many strong flavored foods. Anyway, here is the recipe. It makes a very pretty salad, IMHO.
Creamy Beet Salad
4-5 medium beets, cooked, cooled, and julienned or cubed (I baked mine while baking something else)
1/4 cup chopped onion (red is pretty if you have it)
3 Tbsps. mayonnaise
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. sugar
1 Tbsp. rice vinegar (could substitute cider vinegar)
Combine all ingredients gently. It would also be good with the addition of a diced apple and/or some toasted walnuts or pecans.
