I love to buy pre-cooked beets to keep on hand, but you can totally cook them yourself. Trim the greens and cook beets in a large pot of simmering water until they are fork-tender. This usually takes about 30 minutes. Place cooked beets in a large bowl filled with cold water and peel when they’re cool enough to handle.
Skip the sour cream, mayonnaise and cheese. Make the dressing with vegan mayonnaise instead, along with more lemon juice and mustard. You can add other things, just keep the dressing on the sour side, as that works best with the rest of the ingredients. Use nutritional yeast or almonds flakes in place of cheese shavings.
