  1. Place beets in a saucepan, cover with water, and cook until tender yet firm to the bite, 20 to 40 minutes depending on their size. Drain, peel, and coarsely grate.
  2. Combine sour cream and garlic in a large bowl. Add beets, Havarti cheese, walnuts, and prunes; stir to combine. Season with salt.


  • Cook's Note:
  • I chop the walnuts first, then put them in a resealable plastic bag and crush them with my rolling pin further.
