This is one of my favorite Russian salads. The combination of sweet beets, creamy mayo dressing and sharp taste of garlic, plus that wonderful crunch from the walnuts is the almost to good to be true.
You can serve it as a salad or if you grate the beets finer, and serve it on bread as bruschetta.
4 large beets
1/4 cup walnuts (finely chopped)
3 garlic cloves (minced)
2 TB Mayo
salt and pepper to taste
Cook you beets. My favorite way and least messy to do this is to wash and wrap the beets individually in foil.
Stick into the oven at 350 for 50-60 minutes until soft.
Let them completely cool. ( I usually stick into the fridge for a few hours)
Add mayo, minced garlic, salt/pepper and chopped walnuts.
Give it all a good stir.
Keep in the fridge until ready to serve.
(You can make this salad in advance and serve the next day)
Thank you so much for visiting and I hope you have a wonderful day!
