Beet and Green Apple Salad

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 pounds)
small red onion, chopped
2 tart green apples, cut in halves, cored and thinly sliced (unpeeled)

1 shallot, minced
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon horseradish
1 teaspoons red wine vinegar
teaspoon celery seed
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons olive oil
teaspoon salt freshly ground pepper to taste

1/3 cup chopped green onions
2 tablespoons 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.
