Beets & Potato Salad Recipe
Salad Bètrav Ak Patat
This salad right here is from salad heaven. Yes it is truly.
Usually served with a meal, or at various events, it is not a salad that will be served alone. As with many Haitian dishes, it is cooked and served differently by different households but the base remains the same : beets, potatoes and mayonnaise and of course spices make up this amazingly simple yet great tasting recipe.
2 cups beets cut in small squares (so it looks pretty)
½ cup potatoes
½ cup carrots
1 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup diced onions
pinch of salt
pinch of pepper
pinch of thyme
finely chopped parsley
Start by thinking how you are going to enjoy your salad!
