  • Roasted Beet and Apple Salad

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

    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.

    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.
