Beet and Apple Salad

READY IN: 18mins
Recipe by Kaarin

Sweet and creamy cooked dressing on a beautiful old fashioned salad. From a 1960 cookbook "Pennsylvania Dutch Cooking". I usually peel the apples and omit the nuts.

I used some granny smith apples and my homemade blackberry vinegar instead of plain white vinegar. Delicious and refreshing taste!
