Why??? Beets are not that bad. Not bad at all. Actually, they can be quite delicious. Granted, I grew up with beets.
Well, not literally, but I ate a lot of beets, like everyone else in Russia.
Beets, carrots, potatoes, and cabbage were available and cheap, so they made their way into many recipes.
2 medium beets
1 medium onion
1 pound of mushrooms
Dill, cilantro, or parsley — or some combination of these greens
1. Boil eggs and beets until eggs are hard-boiled and beets feel soft when you stick a fork in them. Peel beets AFTER cooking. Peel the eggs after cooking, too, but you know that :). Slice/cut beets and eggs into small bite-size pieces. Small is good for this salad because smaller pieces will allow for flavors to mix more.
2. Saute’ sliced mushrooms and sliced onion in some butter until onions are golden and translucent.
3. Toss everything together with chopped greens, mayonnaise and salt.
