Recipe of the month: two Beet Salads

Did you know beets are good for digestion and blood flow? I don’t generally eat beets, so I wasn’t aware of this before a friend mentioned it, but I’ll be making this salad more often from now on that’s for sure.

Beets Salad

1 small onion
30 dkg beets
2 average sized pickles
10 dkg homemade mayonnaise
1 dl sour cream
2 spoons horseradish
salt, white pepper

Boil the beets for 20-30 minutes until they’re tender.

Chop all the ingredients finely, combine with the homemade mayo and sour cream, then season to taste.

Serve as a salad with fish or different kinds of meat.

This is how I usually prepare my beets salad, but I actually turned it into a simple salad from the below recipe I once saw.
