This grated beet wonder will be sure to spice up any meal. This is a sweet and savory salad with a fine crunch form the walnuts. This recipe can be a little messy to work with because the boiled beets tend to dye everything red, so be sure that you are equipped with an apron.

I agree with Mike. The mayo seemed bland. A vinaigrette would have given the beet salad more pazazze. I added 1 Tbsp. each of fresh Lime juice & Lemon juice. I may add a bit more or some vinegar. I think the beets taste best just cooked and sliced. Read More
