I experimented and came up with this recipe as a way to use my fresh beets and cucumber together. It is a nice alternative to potato salad. It has a real 'summertime' flavor.

I omitted the sugar, figuring that the beets were sweet enough! Great taste! The few crispy chunks mixed with the cooked beets is a good contrast! The color is pleasing! This will make a great picnic salad!

Great basic recipe. At the risk of being jumped on by the 'review police', I did make a few changes to suit my family's palate. Mixed it with smoked trout and a touch of horseradish. This then became a light meal for lunch, not just a side. Good recipe, easy to prepare and very tasty.

I like all of the ingredients -- just not together. Wound up throwing this out because neither of us wanted to eat it.
