About this recipe: A quick and easy salad, which is perfect for summer barbecues. Peas are tossed with diced beetroots, onion and salad cream. It's crunchy, light and tangy all at the same time.
I needed beet juice for my pickled eggs and I had no clue what I was going to do with all the left over beets - now there's no doubt in my mind what will happen to them from here on out! My husband and mother couldn't wait for this salad to get really cold before chowing down. I didn't have any canned peas so I used frozen (thawed and drained) and we loved it! I'll bet it's even better with the canned. Thanks for sharing! - 13 Apr 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Great salad idea! Whodda thunk? I ended up using what I had on hand + added 1 ingedient: Dill. (I wondered where the "dill" in the name of the recipe was) My subs were: Equal parts of sour cream & mayo, mixed & 2+ teaspoons dried dill. (I also added 2 extra Tbs onions- I used fresh, sweet Vidalias.) Even the Skeptics liked this one! Cold is key! JEMD- Thanks for submitting & thank your M-I-L! - 18 Jan 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
What? No 10 stars? I love both beets and peas. I added the onion for the crunch effect (love onions too!). This is wonderful! I have to admit I cheated and took a taste before it was really, really cold. Better when fully chilled. Simple, yet tasty. The only thing I would recommend is to quarter the beets due to size before adding. - 04 Sep 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
