    Dreamer in Ontario's Note:

    From Inga Norberg's Good Food From Sweden and found in The Good Cook Salads. This salad is very quick to put together if your potatoes and beets are already cooked.

      This salad was very good and different from the ordinary American potato salad. I really loved the addition of the beets, they added a small sweetness to the tang of the dressing. I ended up making 6 servings so I used 3 beets and I could honestly have use about 6 and it would have been even better. I too rarely make beets and it's a vegetable that we all love, so thank you for giving me an easy way to add them to our diet. The only thing that I think this recipe needed was a little salt and pepper, which I sprinkled on after plating. Thank you Dreamer! Made for team Tasty Testers for the Scandinavian round during ZWT9.

      I do love beets & probably don't serve them anywhere near enough, so this recipe really got hold of me! Although I did follow your recipe right on down, I did use unpeeled potatoes because we enjoy the taste & texture they give a recipe like this! Your potato salad is wonderful & we thoroughly enjoyed it! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
