Made exactly as written and it's very tasty. The caraway seeds are a nice touch. If you like beets, this is a good way to serve them. Read More

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. Read More
