I grew up in Austria and was raised with this salad accompaning many dishes.
This recipe is OK, but I would reduce the caraway seeds to 1/2 Tbs and just 1 Tbs of oil, use brown sugar and julienne cut red onions. The cloves can be omitted as well.
If possible use fresh home grown beeds.
The goal is to preserve and enhance the original delicate sweet flavor of the beeds and not overpower or cover it up.

This turned out very nicely for our German Christmas party, although the beets took FOREVER to cook (I think it ended up being 3.5 hrs or something). I marinated it for about 6 hours and the flavour was very good.

After initially mixing all the ingredients and tasting I was a bit sceptical. However, after several hours in the fridge everything really pulled together quite nicely. I used olive oil instead of vegetable and omitted half the caraway as for my personal preference. Guten appetit!

this was really good! i cheated and used 2 cans of sliced beets, and i omitted the caraway seeds, but the dressing is light and very tasty
