"I LIKE to serve beet relish with corned beef and cabbage. The relish provides an interesting combination of flavors, and it is best made several days ahead. It's a very colorful addition to the table."

"I liked this recipe but didnot love it as much as a similar recipe my Hungarian mother & friends made. I adapted this recipe to : 2 to 4 cans of slice or whole beets chopped finely; adapted the vinegar, sugar oil & salt & pepper to taste. Chilled over night.

I have a better recipe which eliminatre severla of the ingredients in this particulr recipe, but has a better taste."

"Very good. I made two batches: one as printed and one with horseradish as a previous reviewer suggested. Both were good, but my family--who are the supreme arbiters in my world--voted that they like the vinegar version best."

"Add Horseradish for Kick.......... Use Pickled Beets & Forget the Vinegar & Sugar (?)"
