Super Delicious Apple Beat Salad by quornflour

I get it, some people are afraid of beats.

“Yuck” they say.

“They taste like dirt” they say.

I say, “Dirt Made My Lunch!”

Here is what you will need:

  • 1-2 beats grated
  • ½ a head of red romaine lettuce, chopped or torn into small pieces
  • ½ a bundle of spinach, stems removed
  • 1 large carrot grated
  • 1 green apples chopped
  • ¼ Cup candied pecans
  • 2 tablespoons of gorgonzola cheese (optional)
  • Lemon Dressing

After grating the beats (I like red and orange, though the red pretty much takes over all colors), place in a small frying pan with a splash of water and toss until warm to help bring out the sugars. Take off the stove, transfer to a plate and cool in the freezer.

Once the beats are cool, toss all ingredients in a large bowl with lemon dressing and enjoy!

This especially delicious with a steak or soup and a slice of fresh bread or enjoy on its own.

Apple and beat? That is a brand new idea for me.
