Beet and Apple Salad

Today’s delicious salad come from our own back yard here in the Okanagan.  My aunt introduced me to this fantastic number and I had to get the recipe written in stone before the little crumpled paper disappeared into the abyss that is the bottom of my purse!

Ingredients

Salad
1  apple – I used macintosh, just make sure it has some good crunch to it
8 large red beets
1/4 cup crumbled feta or goat cheese
1/3 cup of Peacans
2-3 teaspoons of chopped parsley


Dressing
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp cider vinegar
1 tbsp honey
Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Steam beets for about 25-30 min and then let cool
  2. Peel beets and cube into bite sized cubes
  3. Slice the apple
  4. Transfer beets and apples to a bowl
  5. Cover beets and apple slices with dressing, coat well
  6. Top with cheese and parsley

Enjoy this wonderful creation and maybe plants some beets and an apple tree so you can enjoy this salad at a moments notice!  My salad in the image didn’t include the cheese yet, but be assured it wasn’t forgotten!
