  1. Place the beets into a saucepan, cover with water, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, and gently boil the beets until tender, about 45 minutes. Remove from heat, allow the beets to cool, and peel. Shred the beets using a box grater.
  2. In a salad bowl, mix the onion, salt, black pepper, vinegar, and sugar together lightly until thoroughly combined and the sugar has dissolved; mix in beets, chill, and serve.

This is an awsome recipe. I used a presure cooker to cook the beets, about 5 minutes, then just let them cool & peel.

I just picked up some beets @ the Farmers market and tried them for the first time. I made this recipe and really enjoyed it! I only added a little onion as I wanted my kids to like it. Refreshing and a great new twist on a side dish. Looking forward to trying more beet recipes! Thanks so much.

I thought that there was to much sugar added in this after I tasted it. So I added an extra tablespoon of vinegar and then decided to let it set and see what happened with it. It was ok but still to sweet. Ended up adding Italian dressing to this. Which made it really good.

Who says something has to be complicated to be yummy? This was just perfect! I used some roasted beets I had leftover from another salad recipe.
