    Simple and elegant roasted beet and apple salad, walnuts, feta cheese, and maple vinaigrette. Beautiful dish for your Thanksgiving or holiday table.

    Roasted Beet and Apple Salad

    I recently made this salad but I used a simple lemon juice and olive oil dressing. It was very delicious and looked great on the table. I think it will be a great side dish to bring to any holiday table. Today I decided to make a maple vinaigrette to add more sweetness to this dish.

    The flavors of this roasted beet and apple salad are delicious and complex. The dressing is amazing and adds so much flavor to the beets & apple combination. I think beets are so underrated. But they are so delicious when cooked right.

    Roasted Beet and Apple Salad

    What you need

    2 beets, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces

    1 apple, cut into 1″ cubes

    1 Tbsp olive oil

    salt and pepper to taste

    walnuts, coarsely chopped

    feta cheese, crumbled

    Maple Vinaigrette

    1 Tbsp Dijon mustard

    2 Tbsp maple syrup

    2 Tbsp champagne wine vinegar

    Preparation

    Salad

    Preheat oven to 425 F. Trim beets leaving 1 inch of the stem. Coat lightly with olive oil. Wrap tightly in aluminum foil and place on a baking sheet in the preheated oven. Roast until tender and easily pierced with a knife, about 1 hour. Remove from the oven and let cool for about 10 minutes.

    Slip off the skins with a paring knife and cut the stem. Dice beets in 1″ cubes.

    Mix beets, chopped apple and olive oil in a mixing bowl. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste. Transfer to a salad plate, top with chopped walnuts, crumbled feta cheese and a little bit of maple vinaigrette.

    Maple Vinaigrette

    Mix all ingredients and stir until well combined.

    Enjoy!

    The first time I made this dish, it was a hit, even though I had to substitute white wine vinegar for the champagne vinegar. The recipe is too delicious to have it make 6 servings – more like 3 servings for us. Will definitely make again.
