• 1 lb beets (fresh and boiled or roasted is best, but canned beets work out fine)
  • 8 – 12 prunes, to taste
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • ¼ – ½ cup walnuts (pre-ground if not using a food processor)
  • salt, to taste
  • pepper
  • mayonnaise, to taste (optional)


  1. For a smooth style salad or spread: toss everything in a food processor; pulse until mixed well; season with salt, pepper, and mayo (optional) to taste.
  2. For a chunkier style salad: grate beets on the medium side of a grater; grind or finely chop walnuts (or, buy them pre-ground); mince prunes (or grind them with walnuts in a food processor or by hand); mix everything together and season to taste.
