This unusual combo of beets, walnuts and prunes makes a gorgeous and easy salad which keeps well in the fridge for quite a while. Serve it w/ any meat or poultry dish, or in a buffet w/ other dips and salads. The color is vivid magenta!
For a smooth style salad or spread: Toss everything in a food processor; Pulse until mixed well; Season with salt, pepper, and mayo (optional) to taste.
For a chunkier style salad: Grate beets on the medium side of a grater; Grind or finely chop walnuts (or, buy them pre-ground); Mince prunes (or grind them w/ walnuts in a food processor or by hand); Mix everything together and season to taste.
