Baby Beet Salad

"Cold and refreshing. I don't eat the onions, but their flavor infuses into the dish. Adjust orange juice and vinegar if too sweet or not sweet enough. It tastes even better the next day!"

This was a very tasty beet salad. I used a yellow onion because that's what I had on hand. I think a mild purple onion would work, but not a strong one, so be careful!:-) I will use a ssweet onion next time. The beets and oranges went together beautifully. I did not use canned beets, but my own beets: oven roasted in foil, peeled, and then sliced. It had a good flavor after 2 hours in the fridge. I think it will taste even better tomorrow, and perhaps the onions will be milder and easier to eat.

very bland and not much taste. Not something I would make again.

We enjoyed this recipe very much. I added a package of Truvia sweetner and used a white onion and it worked fine. Will make again. Maxine

I had to sub red wine for cider vinegar. It came out okay, but I think the cider vinegar would have been much better. I also tried bottled orange juice first, and then dumped the liquid and used juce from the can of the mandarins instead, which was much better! A little rosemary compliments this salad nicely, and it looks and tasted beautiful served over a small bed of greens! Although, I might add a touch of olive oil or in the future to balance out the overwhelming acidity. Thanks for the recipe!

This is very easy and very tasty - even for some of the hard to please palates in my family. Will definitely make this again, and recommend it for anyone who wants to impress. Will be great in summer months!

Just tried it tonight. I loved it and find the flavors interesting. I suspect that I will really like it tomorrow and am considering use fresh mint as someone suggested After my 1st serving, I added a little honey - though could not tell the difference.

It was a little odd tasting for me. Not bad, but nothing I would make again. The flavors just didn't meld very well - everything seemed like a separate flavor, and the beets just tasted like beets with orange juice on them and a little vinegar.
