This recipe is adapted from a recipe of a friend of mine from Russia. Her cooking inspired me to love beets.
3 beets, boiled, skins removed and finely diced
1 potato, peeled, par-boiled and finely diced
1 small onion, finely diced or one bunch of green onions, thinly sliced
2 carrots, finely chopped
2-3 celery stalks, finely chopped
3-4 large dill pickles, finely chopped
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil and salt and pepper to taste.
This is a great colorful side dish that works with just about anything. We like it served along side Boca Chik'n Patties in a whole wheat pita pocket. It's also great to take to bbq's or potlucks as it keeps well out of the fridge for a few hours.
