Servings: 8 Servings

Author: Chef Christian Kneedler


  • 1 lb beets (you can buy them canned or boil fresh ones)
  • 1 small red onion or ½ large red onion
  • 2 medium-sized apples (preferably sour apples)
  • ½ cup mayonnaise (or you can mix ¼ cup mayonnaise with ¼ cup crème fraîche)
  • 1 ½ tbsp fresh horseradish
  • pinch of salt
  • pinch of pepper



  1. Dice the beets, peel and finely chop the red onion, and peel, core, and dice the apples.
  1. Mix all the ingredients together into a bowl. You’ll know that it’s thoroughly mixed once the color of the mixture turns fuchsia.
  1. Serve as a side dish. It goes really well with Swedish meatballs!
