This salad was served daily for years at the famous Griswold’s Inn in Claremont, California before it closed in the late 1990s. My family thinks it’s as good on the holiday table as it is at summer picnics. If you’re cooking for two, don’t shy away from this recipe—the beets keep well and actually taste better the second and third days!
