Swedish Pickled Beet and Apple Salad

20 mins (prep 20)
13 ingredients
4-6 servings
According to Marcus Samuelsson, this is a very traditional Swedish salad and a classic accompaniment to Swedish meatballs. I made it, using his pickled beet recipe (posted here), but you could certainly substitute your own favorite. It's very easy to put together and should be served warm or at room temperature, so if you make it ahead, make sure to let it 'unchill' before serving. I have made it with real mayo and sour cream and with lite mayo and fat-free sour cream--you can hardly tell the difference and the latter saves a lot of fat and calories.
