This was my Mother's recipe, and DH, who is a beet-hater, likes it very much. It's especially good with ham or pork, and can jazz up an otherwise plain meal

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Dissolve the lime jello in the boiling water in a saucepan.
  2. Add the cold beet juice, grated onion, horseradish, salt and pepper, mixing thoroughly.
  3. Chill until slightly thickened to the consistency of egg whites.
  4. Fold in the diced beets and celery.
  5. Place into a large salad mold or into 8 individual molds.
  6. Chill for 2 hours or until set.
  7. Unmold to serve and top with a dollop of sour cream on each serving.
