Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 50 minutes


  • 5-6 medium sized beets , scrubbed and peeled
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp prepared horseradish
  • 1/4 cup chopped dill


  1. Grate the beets on the large holes of a box grater (wearing rubber gloves and an apron prevents against staining).
  2. Combine beets with the ingredients in a large bowl and allow them to sit for 1/2 hour or more.

Recipe Notes

If you prefer the soft texture of cooked beets, rather than raw beets (their texture is more like carrots), throw the grated beets in a pan over medium heat and sauté in 1 tbsp of olive oil to soften before continuing on with the recipe.
