"This beet salad works great as a side dish. It's garlicky, creamy, sweet, a little crunchy, and a little salty. Enjoy this authentic Russian recipe that everyone in my family always makes."

  1. Place the beets into a saucepan and fill with just enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, then simmer over medium heat until tender enough to pierce with a fork, about 20 minutes. Drain and rub off peels. Run under cold water until cool enough to handle, then grate using the largest setting. Place in a serving bowl.
  2. Stir the walnuts, prunes and garlic into the beets, then mix in the mayonnaise and season to taste with salt.

I'm Russian myself and we've been making this salad as long as I can remember! Never used prunes though, just boiled beets, walnuts, garlic and mayo. Make sure you chop walnuts coarsely for the ...

If you love beets you'll love this little salad. I made it the first time just to get rid of some fresh beets that I had and didn't want to lose. Now I buy beets just to make this salad.

Made this yesterday. Wonderful. Authentic Russian salad does not use prunes so omitted them. However, try adding pomegrante seeds to salad. Superb!!!
