Fantastic. I used pre-cooked beets and left the onion out. Super quick and healthy. Thanks for the great recipe!

Yum~! I cooked the beets in the oven wrapped in foil to preserve their flavor and juice and just slipped off the skins. I used a little less mayo and more horseradish but otherwise followed the recipe. Then, I cooked the beet greens with a little onion, garlic, vinegar and red pepper. Mmmmm.

Fabulous! I did tweak the dressing a bit; I used very little mayo, more lowfat sour cream, and a LOT more horseradish. I used increased the vinegar/sugar addition by another teaspoon or two ... the sugar balanced out my reducing the mayo. It was really wonderful -- thanks for posting.
