Traditional Newfoundland Beet Salad

The first time I saw this one my plate in Newfoundland I was a bit taken aback, not quite sure what it was, but I was pleasantly surprised, although I love both mashed potatoes and pickled beets so I’m not sure why I thought I wouldn’t like it. If the texture of mashed potatoes in a salad throws you off feel free to simply dice the potatoes.
