Delish!! I am fast becoming a beet fan. I also had to use the bottled horseradish, as that is what was in the house tho I am sure it is much better with the fresh. I used a large Granny Smith apple. Next time I may try adding some chopped red onion. Thanks for posting French Tart. Made for ZWT 6.
We all enjoyed this dish, especially Our family members born in Russia. Because of its delightful color, I served this as a side dish on Christmas Day. However, I added more apples, beets and pickles because I found the sour cream to be overwhelming. Next time I think I will add a little onion and some pecans.
You never know who the star of the show is going to be, but thos little salad was hands down the favourite of 5 I made for a BBQ last night. I set up all the food on a serving table, but someone got up and brought this salad to the table beside them and would hardley share with the rest. All the ladies present asked for the recipe and all the men ooohed and ahhed over it too. I used 3 teaspoons of a bought horseradish (but it contained 99% horseradish) otherwise made the recipe as stated. I think this will get made at every BBQ we have for a while to come!
What a taste treat! I wasn't sure what to expect, but it exceeded everything I thought about salad. The sweetness was offset perfectly by the horseradish! Huzzah! Tartie, dear! Made for KcK's Forum Tag Game.
This was absolutely terrific and I could easily eat it as my main (supplemented by a couple of slices of smoked salmon). Part of our Scandinavian lunch today. I was thinking of scaling to half but am now glad I made the full amount as this is just too good! BTW, the horseradish is perfect with the other sweet/sour components of this. Wonderful!
Haven't had this for years. Gave me a wave of nostalgia for my home country. Easy to make and so tasty. Great. Used a Granny Smith apple and increased the horseradish to one tablespoon (personal preference). I always have a piece of horseradish in the freezer and grate it straight from the freezer. (less tears.......) Will certainly make again. Thanks for posting.
Pickles and horseradish are the keys to the wonderful flavour of this salad. I made two little adjustments. I only had baby cornichons, so used 15 of those to equal two gherkins. In the absence of fresh horseradish, I used 1 heaped tablespoon of the bottled stuff. So easy to make, so tasty, so pretty on the table. My Scandanavian exchange students would approve. So should everyone else. Thanks so much, French Tart.
