Helpful hints

  • Gorgonzola cheese is an Italian-made blue cheese. Because blue cheese has intense flavor and is very high in sodium (400 mg/ounce), a very small portion size is used in this recipe.
  • Chill beets before preparing recipe.

Beet and Cucumber Salad

Could you use fresh beets we grow them in the garden. Dietitian comment: Yes, homegrown beets are fine to use. One note--the beet greens are very high in potassium so do not eat them if you are on a low potassium plan.

We don't like gorgonzola, so we used provolone and it was very tasty.
