Beet Macaroni Salad Recipe

Just mention the word "beet" and most kids turn up their noses. Our two children never rushed to the table for beets...but now, when I mention that I'm serving this salad, the response is just the opposite. My mother would prepare dish for me when I was a little girl. It was the only way I'd eat this ruby vegetable.—Sue Gronholz, Beaver Dam, Wisconsin
