Russian Beet Salad

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by LipsLaRue

Fast and healthy recipe found in the 1970's from a health food magazine. Too many years ago to remember which magazine, health food promoter, etc., but it is delicious if you love garlic!

I like this salad too, but other reviewers I boil beets too. I had one left over carrot so I added it too and it tasted great. I also used regular walnuts. The walnuts twist gives this salad a better texture. My mom makes similiar salad but this one is way better and I cannot wait to have my mom over to show off. Definitely boil the beets unless you are into raw food
