Let's really wake up ho-hum beets by making a salad that's popular not only in the South, but everywhere!

What You'll Need

  • 1 (20-ounce) can crushed pineapple in heavy syrup, undrained
  • 1 package (4-serving size) strawberry-flavored gelatin
  • 1 (8¼-ounce) can sliced beets, drained, finely chopped with 1/3 cup liquid reserved
  • 3 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon prepared horseradish
  • 2 stalks celery, finely chopped

What to Do

  1. In a medium-sized saucepan, combine the pineapple with its syrup and the gelatin; bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Add the remaining ingredients; mix well.

  2. Pour into an 8-inch square baking dish and chill for at least 4 hours, or until set. Serve, or cover and chill until ready to serve.
