  1. would it matter if you leave out the beets…i love them but husband does not….also can you use other cheeses…..thanks….ada

  2. That’s the great thing about salads, you can add/omit/substitute anything you like! Instead of beets, you could try blackberries or marinated artichokes. Other cheeses you could try are feta or brie.
