Beet and Green Apple Salad

Printer Friendly Version
A crisp and absolutely beautiful salad that came to us from a wonderful young friend who cooks from the garden for twelve hungry organic farmers every day!

  • 5 to 6 medium to large beets (about 1 1/2 pounds)
  • 1/2 small red onion, chopped
  • 2 tart green apples, cut in halves, cored and thinly sliced (unpeeled)
Dressing:
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp horseradish
  • 1 1/2 tsp red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp celery seed
  • 2 T vegetable oil
  • 2 T olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp salt freshly ground pepper to taste
Garnish:
  • 1/3 cup chopped green onions
  • 2 T chopped fresh dill

Wash beets, but do not peel. Place in a saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and cook until tender when pierced with a sharp knife. Cool, peel, and cut in half, then slice halves into thin slices. Place beets in a salad bowl with onion and apple slices. Combine dressing ingredients and toss with salad. Garnish with scallions and dill, and serve.

Serves 6 to 8
