We enjoy fresh beets all summer long. This ruby-red dish is an excellent change from the typical tossed salad and pairs well with any sandwich and entree.

"I can't believe that this tasty, super easy recipe only has one Review. Both hubby and I really enjoyed a small sampling of this recipe. Its a very nice alternative to the ever popular cucumber one. The taste is very Fresh even though I used one small can of Beets. I did not change one thing as the ingredients looked perfect to me which is what drew me in. I did add the juice that the beets came in. Turned out to be a nice idea as it did give the beets more marinating liquid.

As a Taste of Home Volunteer Field Editor I highly suggest alternating the cucumber salad with this one * I sure am glad I did *
