Beautiful Beet Salad

Terri Lowe


My Grandma came up with this recipe to get her kids to eat more beets from her garden back in the day when food was a premium. I've just had it all my life. Didn't know no one else didn't. This is requested by my daughters at all holiday gatherings. They now demand a double batch. I thought it so strange that I was asked for the recipe at a reunion. I said, where were you growing up that you never got it. Guess it was in our vein of the family. Anyway, for beet lovers, you will LOVE this and maybe it will convert some non beet lovers. Enjoy!!
