Moldovan Beet Salad

This is a Moldovan recipe for a traditional salad of cooked beets mixed with nuts, garlic and mayonnaise. I'm sure the beets used are usually magenta; I had golden beets in my CSA box, so I used those.

This was not a hit. Here's how the conversation went with Riley...

R: I don't like coleslaw.
C: It's not coleslaw.
R: I don't like sauerkraut.
C: It's not sauerkraut.
R: I just don't like it!
C: Well, eat three big bites anyway.


  • 2 cups beets, cooked and shredded
  • 1 teaspoon crushed garlic
  • 2 Tablespoons ground almonds
  • 2 Tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 Tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • freshly ground sea salt, to taste

Combine the ingredients in a large mixing bowl and set aside to infuse for at least 1 hour before serving as a side dish.
