Beet Salad

Beets, you either love ’em or hate ’em. I used to be on Team Hate, but changed my ways. Now, I say give me all the beets! I made a Beet Salad that is perfect as a summer side dish to go with your steak!

If you Google Beet Salad, you’ll find all sorts of results. My Beet Salad uses pickled beets and has a creamy dressing with a kick of horseradish. Each bite bursts with flavour.

This salad would also work if you wanted to use the non-pickled variety of beets. I used Baby Pickled Beets so I wouldn’t have to chop them up and stain my cutting boards. Plus, no purple fingers. Sliced pickled beets would also be fine. In Canada, it was two jars of Baby Pickled Beets.
