"This grated beet wonder will be sure to spice up any meal. This is a sweet and savory salad with a fine crunch form the walnuts. This recipe can be a little messy to work with because the boiled beets tend to dye everything red, so be sure that you are equipped with an apron."

  1. Place the beets into a large saucepan with enough water to cover the beets by 1 inch. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the beets are easily pierced with a fork, about 40 minutes; drain. Chill beets in refrigerator until cool enough to handle.
  2. Peel the beets and grate into a large bowl. Stir the prunes, walnuts, and pickle with the beets. Add the mayonnaise and stir until all the ingredients are evenly coated. Chill completely before serving.

Essentially this recipe is a classic.Tasty summertime salad or side dish - EXCEPT for the MAYONNAISE. Too heavy. Try it with a vinaigrette.

Thank you for the recipe, the crunch of the walnuts is a plus!

I agree with Mike. The mayo seemed bland. A vinaigrette would have given the beet salad more pazazze. I added 1 Tbsp. each of fresh Lime juice & Lemon juice. I may add a bit more or some vinega...
