A wonderfully hearty and robust salad. It's made by tossing together beetroot, rice, kidney beans, pepper, onion and radishes in a horseradish-Dijon dressing.
Red rice can be purchased in speciality stores or online. If unavailable, substitute in brown rice.
It taste earthy, good but seemed to be missing an element. I used aduki beans,and a mixture of brown,wild and red rice. The dressing seemed a bit oily on the palate, felt I wanted to add a couple of pickled onions. May be because I have been used to the pickled beets. VERY PINK AND GETS PINKER (good for a breast cancer buffet). Will give it another try but may tweak it a bit more to my palate. - 30 Jul 2014
I did not have all the ingredients - I used long grain rice in place of red rice and horseradish sauce in place of the horseradish. I had fresh beets from my garden and was excited to try them - This recipe didn't disappoint. I went easy on the dressing and stored the remainder - I've been able to add additional rice, beans, beets, etc. and more sauce as needed. Very flavorful summer salad.

I made this basically as is with a couple of substitutions with what I had on hand: brown rice, garbanzo beans, and green onions. Colorful and delicious! - 07 Feb 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
