Beet and Cucumber Salad

Alf

"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."

My boyfriend and I love this dish! The cucumber and beets are a great combo for the palette and the eggs take care of any protein cravings. Thanks, Alf!

This is my all time favorite beet recipe! I always double this recipe because it is so delicious and tastes even better the next day! I followed it almost exactly except I used apple cider vineg...

Heavens to Beetsy this is delish! I didn't change a thing (is someone going to congratulate me for that?) I will be making this again!

I, too, skipped the sugar, diced the onions and used a pinch of dried dill - SO delicious!! Thanks be to the commenters & Alf - this truly is a nice summery salad.

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.
