    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.

    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.
