But I Do Not Like Beets - Guest Post by Kim Hendrickson, Salvia Press

Saturday, June 24th 2017 @ 1:16 PM

I have a Memorial Day picnic each year and the “formula” which works for me each year is to ask each person/couple coming to bring a salad and/or something they like to drink. That way, as people come there is a steady stream of beverages and food to add to what I have prepared.

I wonder, how many times has the following situation happened to you? On the day of my picnic, as people are arriving, one of my guests hands me a  very colorful salad and I realize that it contains one of my least favorite veggies: beets. I eventually got around to tasting the salad, expecting not to like it (because I cannot seem to get over that beet flavor!), but it was really, really good. A miracle for me! I was so impressed and couldn’t stop complimenting her. Thought you might like the recipe:


BEET APPLES SALAD

Yield: 1 huge bowl for 20 or more

8 cans of whole beets, diced

1 can crushed pineapple, drained

1 can of pineapple chunks, cut into smaller bits

3 pink lady apples, diced

3 cups shredded carrots

½ cup diced red onion diced

2 cups peas (frozen or fresh)

1 cup chopped walnuts

Combine all ingredients together, except the walnuts. Sprinkle the nuts on top before  serving.

(This salad can be made in advance and holds up very well at a picnic or in containers for a week or more after the picnic.)
