"According to Marcus Samuelsson, this is a very traditional Swedish salad and a classic accompaniment to Swedish meatballs. I made it, using his pickled beet recipe (posted here), but you could certainly substitute your own favorite. It's very easy to put together and should be served warm or at room temperature, so if you make it ahead, make sure to let it 'unchill' before serving. I have made it with real mayo and sour cream and with lite mayo and fat-free sour cream--you can hardly tell the difference and the latter saves a lot of fat and calories."

"Delicious!! I made this dish for a Swedish Christmas dinner. I sliced and cooked the beets prior to pickling and used golden beets instead of red beets for a nice color contrast with the onions. The dish was very easy to make and tasted great as a leftover. Everyone at our dinner party loved this salad and I will definitely make it again."
"When I saw this recipe I just had to try it. It reminds me a bit of a salad my mother makes at Christmas with beets, apples and herring, without the fish of cource. I wasn't disappointed. This was very good. I served it warm as a side to an omelet for lunch. Made for Veg Swap."
"This salad was absolutely perfect with a smorgasbord luncheon I put together. Made it the night before then let it come to room temperature the next morning. There was more than enough for 6 of us. Nice compliment to wilted cucumber salad."
"GREAT, GREAT, GREAT! I did the whole trio thing, making Chef Kate's recipe #122894 & recipe #122898 just so I could see how this salad would turn out! Well, IT'S GREAT, as I said! I did use the light mayo & the fat-free sour cream, & the salad was a hit, but then I like pickled beets a lot! The apples were a very nice addition & complemented the beets very well! Thanks for sharing! [Made & reviewed in Please Review My Recipe cooking game]"
"Outstanding! Just delicious. I made this wonderful dish completely from scratch: 1st, recipe#122894 to marinate the beets; 2nd, recipe#122898 as the beets recipe; finally, recipe#122899, this lovely salad recipe I am reviewing. This is all a cut above normal!"
"Absolutely wonderful! Love the tanginess from the apples, lemon juice the sweetness from the onions and apples, the saltiness from the capers really brings this over the top! Oh and the creaminess gives this do much richness. Thank you Kate for a great Swedish Salad!"
"This salad is positively addictive and so refreshing! The flavours of the sweet beet, onion, sweet apples and creamy dressing truly complement each other and I couldn't stop eating. Love the light pink colour contrasted with the bright green parsley and spring onion top garnish (no chives available) - looked too pretty for words. A definite keeper."
