Beet Salad

Beet Salad

I used to make this beet salad using fresh beets. One week I substituted canned when I was short on time and seriously could not tell the difference. Since then I always make it with canned beets, and it makes the prep time so much shorter.


  • 2 15-oz (425-g) cans whole beets with liquid, shredded on the large shredder in the food processor
  • 13 cup lemon juice
  • 13 cup sugar
  • 2 Tbsp oil
  • 14 tsp salt
  • black pepper, to taste
  • 12 small red onion, thinly sliced

Combine all ingredients and refrigerate for a few hours before serving to allow the flavors to blend. Lasts for about a week in the fridge.
