    I was a little bit disappointed in this salad. everyone at our gathering ate it, and I didnt get any bad commentsm but I also didnt get any compliments. I found it somewhat lacking in flavor, but it was definately a little more flavorful the next day. It makes a pretty presentation, but it lacks the pazazz that would have made it more memorable, and the kind of recipe that someone would say " ohhhh could ya make THAT again!?".  -  02 Sep 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    thought this was very tasty. I used my box grater and grated the beets instead of slicing and loved the texture  -  02 Oct 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
