Fresh dill goes great with tomatoes and beets. Such a refreshing salad for a hot summer evening. Add other vegetables, if you like.

This was a delicious salad.......the only changes I made was to use only 1/4 cup olive oil and no other oils.......I also used fresh cooked beets. I served it on individual salad plates. It looked as great as it tasted. I will be serving this again and again. Read More

I'm new to cooking so I don't have a good supply of fancy oils in the cupboard YET so I just used olive oil red wine vinegar lemon juice and a few good shakes of a dry lemon dill herb blend and a dash of salt and pepper for the dressing. I have fallen in love with roasted beets so I used them instead of canned. The sweetness of the beets combined with the celery onion and tomatoes was wonderful! This cool and crisp salad was perfect for a nice summer day like today! I look forward to making it again when I have walnut oil! Read More

I used green pepper and onion to get the green color and the onion flavor. I cooked fresh beets. The walnut oil really makes this salad! It smells great looks cool and crisp and tastes delightful! Read More
