Potato Red Beet Salad
Actually, it’s not just potatoes and red beets that are in this salad. There’s carrots and green beans, and some chicken. This recipe makes for a great dish for any season, but especially for the holidays and special occasions.
My mom used to make a similar salad with just the beets and chicken, but my sister opened my eyes — and palate — to this new delicious combination.
Make it on a weekend, and enjoy it all weeklong!

1 medium red beet, boiled, peeled and cut into tiny squares
