The dressing on these beets was oh-so-good (be sure to include the horseradish)! I made my life very easy and used some vacuum-packed pre-cooked beets that I had in my pantry. Also, did not use the lettuce - just beets, onions and dressing for us. Thanks.

Colourful, elegant salad. I used a thick, Mediterranean-style yogurt in place of the whipping cream and sour cream, which worked out very well I think. Also, I like to soak my sliced onions in cold water for salads in order to remove some of the harsh zing.

Imagine my surprise walking outside to the herb garden only to realize that my dill plant was eaten down to a nubbin. Fortunately I have dried dill on hand which isn't as good as fresh but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta go. I subbed half of the red beets with golden beets and half red onion for white onion. The selection of boston lettuce at the store wasn't very good and again I subbed romaine hearts and a variety of mixed spring greens. All in all a delicious and actually very simple recipe to prepare. Reviewed for ZWT 2010.

Perfection! I love roasted beets, and this was wonderful. I hate the red stain it leaves under my fingernails, but I should wear gloves! The dressing was delightful, and I added just a bit more horseradish because I like things "hot, hot, hot"! So glad I tried this recipe for the tour. Thanks for sharing!

Loved this! I typically have roasted beets on hand because I love them, and this was a nice and different way to use some up. I really liked the combination of the zingy horseradish and fresh dill in the dressing. I didn't see any reason to buy another head of lettuce when I had some in the crisper, so I just used the romaine that I already had. I don't usually care for raw onion in salads either, but I think it went very well with the other flavors in this salad. I'm sure I'll be making this salad often. Thanks for posting!

Restaurant worthy recipe. Loved everything about it. I did use more horseradish than what the recipe called for, but I am silly like that. I also used seasoning salt instead of regular salt and I HIGHLY recommend this sub. Thanks for sharing! Made for ZWT6 Team SSaSSy.

I loved this recipe. I used both red and yellow beets because I like the contrasting colours. I'm a heat wimp so I started with 1/2 of the horseradish and added smidgeon by smidgeon until it was spicy but didn't peel the skin off the inside of my mouth. ;) (I did say I was a wimp). I also used a little less dill and was very please with the result. Thanks for posting this very pretty and tasy salad. Made for ZWT6 on behalf of the Looney Spoon Phoodies.

Fabulous! Served it tonight at a dinner party. I thought my horseradish was sharp, but once I combined all the ingredients, it was very mild ... so I just kept adding horseradish. It ended up being mild, but quite flavorful, and combined with the beets and sweet onion, made for a wonderful salad. Thanks for posting!

This was great! My horseradish was getting old and I think may have lost some of its kick so I added quite a bit more than the recipe called for, tasting after each addition. Approximately 3 tablespoons all together. It was delicious! Can't wait to make this again.
