Apple, Beet and Walnut Salad

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Jenny Sanders

This is a nice fall salad, simple and light. It makes a good starter for a special meal. I have made it a few times for Thanksgiving.

This is a very pretty salad. I didn't plate it up as I made it for Cdn Thanksgiving and it would have taken too much time to do each separately. Instead, I layered everything in a pretty crystal bowl then tossed everything around to serve.

I had to fiddle with the dressing to get it to taste right to me. The measurements as they were in the recipe seemed too vinegary. I wound up adding more apple juice to it.
