Beet Salad

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by threeovens

In this recipe the beets are grated, then dressed. It calls for cooked beets, so they could be roasted or boiled, your choice. You could also use canned beets, but you would have to cut them up really thin in julienne style.

Ok I must have made a mistake! I had 2 roasted beets and one was smaller so I only used about 3 scant tablespoons (maybe even 2 1/2) of prepared horseradish. With my first bite I practically burned my sinuses out! Whew! I'm wondering if I should have used significantly less if using prepared vs. fresh horseradish? I'm really bummed because I was so looking forward to this! I added three garden tomatoes chopped up to the mix to see if it would help mellow. I'll try it again tomorrow and see.
