Ranjiv’s Grandparents Beet Salad

Ranjiv’s grandparents would always make this when they cooked fish.  His tip for removing the beet’s skin:  boil the beets with the skin on….  After boiled, let cool and just sqeeze the beet in your hand and the skin will just slide off.


  • Finely sliced green onions or chives
  • Beets
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Pinch of sugar, vinegar, caraway seeds, olive oil
  • Small spoon of horseradish


Boil beets, let cool, grate on coarse side of box grater, add salt/pepper/pinch of sugar/vinegar/caraway seeds/olive oil/onions or chives and a wee spoon of horseradish…  Mix and let sit for a while.
