  2. Combine apple cider vinegar, olive oil, sugar, salt, and pepper in a small bowl and pour over beets. Mix well. Add caraway seeds and mix again. Allow to chill 2 hours before serving.

I made this salad and it was very tasty. I accidentally used fennel seeds instead of caraway and the flavors are good together. I did add some mayonnaise.
