Super easy and delicious! I wasn't sure I liked beets after having avoided them for many years. We always ate them either canned or pickled when I was growing up. I used fresh steamed beets and skipped the sour cream for a refreshing summer salad. Read More

This recipe was great. I used one cup of watermelon and used a bit of parsley (dropping the cilantro). The family loved it! 5 huge stars! Made it 3 times this week! Mom who has dementia will eat things that are sweet. This was great as it requires no added sugar! Read More

This is the most unusual combination and I'm pleased to say that it worked. I used fresh beets that I roasted until tender then peeled. I will double the watermelon next time. Very fresh tasting dish. Thanks mab575. Read More

This recipe was simple, easy and delicious. Wasn’t sure how the watermelon and beets would be together but the final result was amazing. Guests and hubs went for seconds. Will definitely be making this more especially over the summer months. Read More

I loved it - strange combination. I'm not the hugest fan of cilantro so I'll probably leave it out next time. The flavors all really worked together nicely. Will make it again! Read More
