I tagged this recipe in Zaar tag, then resisted it because I didn't want to grate the beets - and decorate my sink... (I love beets BTW)...then I was at the store and saw freshly grated beets in the salad bar! I went right home with my perfectly grated fresh beets in the little tinfoil box and finally made this yummy salad. I'm making it again for an upcoming party! It was very good!
