Marinated Beet Salad
A delicious salad for any occasion. If you are lucky enough to live where you can get fresh lettuce in December this would be fantastic on a Christmas table. Don't be squeamish about onions and raisins, they go really well together. I have seen similar receipts in Polish and Finnish cookbooks.
- 28 ounces canned beets
- 1 large red onion
- 1 head red leaf lettuce
- 1 cup golden raisin
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
- salt & pepper
Drain beets and chop into bite sized pieces.
In a large bowl mix all ingredients except lettuce.
Refrigerate 20 minutes.
Wash lettuce and let it dry thoroughly.
On a large serving platter arrange lettuce in an attractive manner.
Spoon beet salad over lettuce.
Cover with cling wrap and refrigerate until ready to serve.
