I would have rated this 5 stars except for a couple of small quibbles. The recipe gives no estimated time as to how long to cook the beets. 5 minutes? 20 minutes? 1 hour? This may be confusing for novice cooks. Also 2 tablespoons of caraway seeds is way too much. I used 2 teaspoons and it was perfect. Otherwise, these were delicious. I added some dill and a can of mandarin oranges to the salad as recommened by other reviewers. Also I added more horseradish because 1 teaspoon didn't give it the kick I was looking for. My husband and I enjoyed this very much. Thanks.

This recipe is great! I used only 1 tbsp of Caraway seeds instead of 2 and I added a bit of fresh dill, but mostly I followed the recipe. It was very great the 1st night, but was even better 2 days later! It definately reminds me of the flavors of my German grandmother's cooking.

This started out to be just a way to use up some beets, after finding it I buy them all the time. I add fresh orange segments and it is the greatest thing around.
