1 can (16 oz.) sliced beets
1 package (6 oz.) lemon flavored gelatin
1 1/2 cups water
2 Tbs. finely chopped onion
1 to 2 Tbs. prepared horseradish
4 tsp. vinegar
1/4 tsp. salt
1-1/2 cups celery chopped in small pieces
1/4 cup sliced stuffed olives for garnish
Drain beets, reserving liquid; add water to equal 2 cups fluid.
On a cutting board place two or three slices of beets and slice both ways to make small quarter pieces.
In a saucepan, bring liquid (2 cups beet juice and water mixture) to a boil. Then, add the box of gelatin and stir until dissolved. Add the onion, horseradish, vinegar, salt and 1 1/2 cups of water. Stir well, chill in refrigerator until partially set. Stir in the beets, celery and olives. Pour into an 8-in square dish. Chill until firm; about 3 hours.
Cut salad into squares. If desired, serve on individual plates with leaf of lettuce. You can also top the salad with mayonnaise. Just a dab and a sliced olive on top. Very pretty, tasty and healthy.
Yield 9-12 servings.
