Marinated Beet Salad
From: KookieMomster

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.

Chop onion.

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.
