Beet and Cucumber Salad

Recipe by  

"I experimented and came up with this recipe as a way to use my fresh beets and cucumber together. It is a nice alternative to potato salad. It has a real 'summertime' flavor."

I omitted the sugar, figuring that the beets were sweet enough! Great taste! The few crispy chunks mixed with the cooked beets is a good contrast! The color is pleasing! This will make a great picnic salad!

Great basic recipe. At the risk of being jumped on by the 'review police', I did make a few changes to suit my family's palate. Mixed it with smoked trout and a touch of horseradish. This then became a light meal for lunch, not just a side. Good recipe, easy to prepare and very tasty.

Yum yum yum. Am eating it now. Omitted the sugar, added a big splash of lemon juice to the marinade. Served it over poached cod. yum yum!!!

Great recipe, although next time I will dice the onions instead of using slices, and use 1/2 amount of sugar or omit altogether, was a bit too sweet for me. Thanks for sharing.

I used bottled beets; I was in a hurry and didn't want to make a huge mess. The flavors were bland, and my husband thought the eggs gave the salad a "weird consistency" with the cukes and beets. I thought it was good, but I would try to amp up the flavors somehow if I made this again.
