beetsalad_85

Another favourite at our Midsummer table is Apple & Beet Salad. As a spread on a slice of hard bread or the base of an open face meatball sandwich, the table wouldn’t be complete without it!

Okay, let’s see how it’s made

This is what you’ll need:

  • 2 cups pickled beets (drained)
  • 2 Granny Smith apples (cored and chopped)
  • 1/2 white onion
  • 5-6 sweet gherkins
  • 1/3 cup celery (chopped)
  • 1/2 cup sour cream

Oh, and a food processor (or blender)

Just serve it in a bowl (make sure your guests know it’s not ice cream!)
