Beet and Apple Salad

It's beet season, so we're eating really healthy lately. Beets are not only good for your liver, but look at their color, anything that color has tho be healthy. This is one of our family staples. If you're needing a snack, why not pull out the beet and apple salad? Sweet enough to satisfy your sugar cravings too. 

One of the simplest recipes ever! 

  • 4 beets
  • 2-3 apples, cored and cut into 1" pieces
  • 1/4-1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
Preheat oven to bake beets at 450 degrees. Cut beets up into quarters, place in middle of foil, and drizzle with olive oil. Wrap beets up nicely and bake until tender. Take beets out and plunge in cold water bath. Remove and slip off peels with your fingers. If peels won't come off easily, use a peeler. 

Cut beets up into 1-2 inch chunks. 

As for your apples, any kind will do. Cut and core apples leaving skin on. Then chop into 1-2 inch pieces and add to bowl with beets. Add oil and vinegar and toss. Eat then or let sit to marinate a bit. Salad lasts up to a week in fridge. Enjoy!
