The best beetroot salad to serve with dinner should be simple and, of course, tasty. The most popular one is the one made with horseradish. However, if you eat it too often, even that can become boring, so from time to time it’s worth replacing horseradish with something just as easy. A great replacement is undoubtedly garlic and a little olive oil. Perfect for meat dishes, it will also work well when served with green salad or goat cheese.

Good to know when making beetroot salad.
I cooked the beets in their skin and peeled them only after they had completely cooled down.
Depending on the size of the beets, they should be boiled for at least two hours.
Red wine vinegar can be replaced with lemon juice or apple cider vinegar.
