Creamy Haitian Beet Salad - If you're Haitian you know what it is...

Haitian Beet Salad/Salad Betrav


1 dozen beets, peeled

6 potatoes, peeled

2 carrots, peeled

1 onion, finely chopped

1 bell pepper, finely chopped 

1 cube chicken bouillon

1 TBL white vinegar

1 cup mayonnaise

Salt and Pepper to taste


Boil the beets, potatoes, carrots together until soft when tested with a fork.  Finely chop the onion and bell pepper. Remove the beets, potatoes, and carrots from the water.  When they have cooled, chop the beets, potatoes, and carrots into into small squares.  Crush the bouillon cube and add to the beet mixture.  Add vinegar and mayonnaise.  Salt and pepper to taste.  You want the salad to be moist but not runny.  So adjust the mayonnaise to make it look like the photo.  We make this to feed 70 people so our recipe is quite a bit larger than this one!  The kids love this salad!
