Lime and Honey Beet Salad

Our assignment this week in "French Fridays With Dorie" was a delicious beet salad.    Cooked beets are tossed in a sweet and tangy lime and honey vinaigrette.  The vinaigrette completed the flavor of the beets nicely.  This salad was easy and quick.    I served the salad chilled as a side at a recent cookout.  I really liked this salad.  My family believes you need to like beets in order to eat anything with beets. I'm the only one who likes beets - so more of the salad for me:)

Olive Oil, Honey, Vinegar, Lime Juice and Zest

Herbs Added 

Beets Tossed in Vinaigrette


  1. This recipe does make me want to try beets. I have never cooked with them or tasted them. I have used beet sugar before though. Glad this recipe gave you the opportunity to have some that you normally would not make, since the family does not like them.
    Enjoy the weekend!

  2. Mmmmmmm....I just made mine last night and will post next week. I adore beets and this recipe was simple and yummy! I'm the only one who'll eat beets in my family, too, but no complaints about having this all to myself :) Have a great weekend~

  3. Luckily I got to share mine with my daughter and her family, otherwise I would be eating it alone! Love your presentation…looks pretty!
