Can't Beet this Potato Salad

Pat Duran


If you and your family like beets you are going to like this recipe- I got this recipe from my cousin who got it from the internet or some cooking show- she loves surfing the net too!
She is not very good on her feet as her knees are always giving her trouble- and she won't get surgery done on them...says she is too old..LOL So she sits in bed and surfs and scans recipes and cooking shows although she doesn't cook- she lives alone and her daughter,who lives next door- cooks for her... she Loves Rachel Ray, and Dives and Diners..
