Red beet salad is a traditional dish around Christmas in Sweden and northern Europe. Itred_beet_salad goes great with meatballs, ham or turkey and is always a staple on the julbord (or smorgasbord around christmas).

Red beet salad is actually ridiculously easy to make and you can mix some together in just a few minutes. We usually use canned red beets because it’s tradition and it’s easy. You don’t really have to bother peeling and cooking your own beets, canned ones work fine. White onion and apple provides some good crunch to go with the sweet beets and sour cream and mayonnaise make it nice and creamy. Try this on a sandwich with some Swedish meatballs, it’s a little different, very tasty and makes great picnic food.

4 servings (side dish)
  • 2 cups of canned red beats, chopped
  • ½ white onion, chopped
  • ½ apple (crisp like granny smith), chopped
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • Salt and pepper


Mix all the ingredients together. Adjust the sour cream/mayonnaise content to your taste and add some salt and pepper. Preferably let rest in the fridge for a few minutes before serving.
