Beet Salad Recipe

Publisher Photo
We live in the high-mountain country of central Idaho, where the cool climate is idea for root crops like beets. This beet recipe came from a friend many years ago, and it remains one of my favorite party dishes. It's a particularly colorful and refreshing salad to serve at a ladies luncheon or as a tasty complement to a meat dish.

"Soooo glad to find recipe for beet salad using gelatin. Very easy to make. I only had sliced canned beets, so diced 'em. Not horseradish fan, used bit extra celery."
