This recipe came from my good ole standby recipe book from Good Housekeeping. It is easy to make and the beet topping is creamy and sweet. I have adapted it somewhat adding spices (because I've always loved pickled beets!)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Thoroughly drain beets, reserving liquid.
  2. Mash beets slightly with a fork.
  3. Stir in mayonnaise, horseradish and spices to taste. Add beet juice if desired to make the mixture of desired consistancy. Cut head lettuce into 6 wedges or assemble prepared lettuce salad on a plate. Spoon beet mixture over wedges or down the middle of the salad plate. Serve right away or chill for a short time.
