Beets! I just love beets: in homemade juices, in soups, in salads and even as a food colorant to make the pink frosting on cupcakes. They are sweet, beautiful and very good for our health! This Russian beet salad recipe was given to me by my father-in-law, and I make this salad every week starting in late fall until the end of winter. That’s when the beets taste the best!
Russian Beets Salad
- 6 beets (cooked)
- 3 garlic cloves
- 2 tbsp mayonnaise
- 1 pinch salt
- 1 pinch pepper
- If you are using cooked beets, you are ready to start the recipe. If you have raw beets. Start by boiling them for about 45 minutes.
- When your beets are cooled, using a cheese grater, shred the beets on the side of the grater with the smaller holes. Put them into a salad bowl.
- Shred the garlic cloves on the same side that you shred the beets or use a garlic crusher.
- Add 2 tablespoons of mayonnaise, a small pinch of salt and a small pinch of pepper. Mix it thoroughly and its ready!
