A delicious salad for any occasion. If you are lucky enough to live where you can get fresh lettuce in December this would be fantastic on a Christmas table. Don't be squeamish about onions and raisins, they go really well together. I have seen similar receipts in Polish and Finnish cookbooks.


  1. Drain beets and chop into bite sized pieces.
  2. Chop onion.
  3. In a large bowl mix all ingredients except lettuce.
  4. Refrigerate 20 minutes.
  5. Wash lettuce and let it dry thoroughly.
  6. On a large serving platter arrange lettuce in an attractive manner.
  7. Spoon beet salad over lettuce.
  8. Cover with cling wrap and refrigerate until ready to serve.

I will definately make this again! I used a 14.5 oz can of shoestring cut beets so adjusted other ingredients accordingly. Rather than chopped onion, I made thin slices which looked nice withthe shoestring beets. Be sure to eat the lettuce as well, it's not just a garnish - it's yummy and good for you!
