Wonderful beet salad! I used Greek sheep's yoghurt and added a little lime juice to make it more like sour cream, and it was fabulous. Thanks for sharing :)

A hit at a late summer picnic! To dress it up a little I lined the bowl with small fresh beet and basil leaves with a couple of sprigs as a garnish. Thanks for something different to try!

Yes, very nice. A lot like my own beet salad, just a little difference in measurements. Must say I cheated and bought already cooked beets (lazy, lazy.......). The salad is easy to make and since we also like the sauce/dressing so much I doubled that too. Thanks for posting.

Yummy! This salad is very good. I bought some beets mostly for the greens and wasn't sure what to do with the beets themselves, so when i saw this I knew I had to try it. I made it vegan by using soy cream cheese in this. I didn't have any scallions, so used two small shallots and I used dried dill as I didn't have the fresh. It was delicious. I'm going to make this again. Thanks for the great recipe!!!

Yum! What a nice change from pickled beets, which I love. Your tip for baking them first was perfect. For the two of us, I used half the amount of beets, but all of the creamy ingredients. Actually, I could have still doubled the creamy ingredients because the only thing I would do different next time would be to have more of the creamy sauce (and flavor from it). Thanks for posting this one.

I'm trying to add more veggies to my diet and I have found that veggie salads that can go in the lunch the next day are a good solution. Anyhow, hubby and I liked this a lot and the prep tip is also quite good, too. ages gracefully.

This was absolutely divine. I am a beet fanatic so perhaps was prone to love it no matter what, but the sauce is positively addictive. I love the subtle heat from the horseradish, and the creaminess from the mayo and cream. I did make one substitution, and used plain whole yogurt instead of sour cream. I don't think that probably changed the final product much. This is awesome. I will make it again and again. Lucky for me, nobody else in my household likes beets, so I get to eat the whole thing myself! I mopped up every last bit of sauce with a piece of bread -- I might put more sauce in next time, as suggested, just to have this pleasure of mopping up the bowl.
