I love to try something different and this salad is one recipe that I am very fond of. Looks great on a buffet or your holiday dinner table. It is not for everyone but try it you just may love it. Do in advance and put in fridge do not put the dressing on until serving and I recommend that you serve it on the side

I absolutely loved the currant and beet combination. The dressing and other ingredients highlighted the sweet/sour flavors. Enjoyed the capers, Bergy.

This was a really delicious and different salad. I especially loved the little currants and the crunchy almonds. Being the purist that I am I used fresh beets, boiling them until fork tender, then letting them cool before slicing. It was a really great salad that I'll look forward to making again. After saying all that, I'll also admit that I left out the capers! I chickend out...sorry Bergy. Maybe next time.
