This red beet salad is very nice to have with Swedish meatballs, either on a sandwich or as part of a Christmas dinner. It's really easy to make, and since it's made with canned beets, there isn't any cooking involved here, just assembling.


  • 2 cans of canned beets
  • 1 white onion
  • 1 green apple
  • 1 large pickle
  • 3 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 tbp dijon mustard
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • salt and pepper
Drain and rinse the beets, and then dice them up. Also finely dice up the onion, the apple and the pickle. In a large bowl, make the dressing first by combining mayonnaise, mustard, sour cream and salt and pepper to taste. Add the diced beets, onion, apple and pickle. Mix well, taste and perhaps add a bit more salt if needed. Otherwise, let rest in the fridge for a few hours ideally before serving.
