This has got to be one of my favorite creations. It's a simple beet salad with the wonderful taste of garlic and onion and Feta cheese crumbles. I served this to a group of 20 and 19 of them wanted the recipe.

I make this about once a week now. It is absolutely delicious. I do not cook the onions I thin slice some of one raw. Getting a bit of everything in one bite is heaven. Read More

I made this and was a little disappointed. It was okay but not great. I don't think that I will make this again. Read More

I just tried this recipe and my husband and I loved it! I will definitely be making this again. I just eye-balled the amount of feta as I think that's more based on personal taste and I didn't add any salt because the feta had enough. Thanks for this tasty and easy recipe! Read More

This was tasty and not nearly as garlicky as I thought it would be. I used blue cheese because I had it on hand but next time I'll use the feta and add some oregano as well as more onions. I used raw shredded beets and I added red wine vinegar to pump up the flavor a bit. Read More

BEST BEET SALAD!!! I have to admit changing it to my taste though. I prefer herbed goat cheese to feta and I served it over arugula. This combination with the herbs from the cheese required no additional seasoning. GREAT SIDE DISH and very festive looking for holidays. Read More

A great way to kick up a plain old can of beets! It's quick with few ingredients but tastes like a lot more time went into it. Don't be afraid of the onion and garlic -the flavors totally mellow once cooked. This makes enough for 4 small sides. Nice presentation. A keeper. Read More

I have made this recipie several times. It tastes great but I would recommnd leaving a little of the beet juice in the mixture because it gets a little dry. Read More
