Recipe Description
One of the great joys of growing up in New Orleans with an excellent Creole cook in the kitchen was dinner at home. This is one of my favorite saladsthat she prepared. The dressing is as simple as can be, the crunchy red onions give it all the zip it needs, and the beets round out the taste with their sweetness.
