Listen to my heart-Beet Salad

Marty Hufnagel


My thoughtful niece told me about this awesome salad. BUT I DON'T LIKE BEETS! However, beets done this way changed my opinion. Now I'm making this salad every few days and I change up the flavors every time with different oils and vinegar. My favorite has been Pineapple White vinegar with Persian Lime EVOO. Really good!
