Great salad! We loved the combination of the beets, feta cheese and apple. The parsley and dressing were perfect too. I would like to give you more than 5 stars as this was a really good salad. Creaminess from the feta and crunch from the granny smith apples that I used and tang from the beetroot. Photo also to be posted
I Love beets, feta and chickpeas so how could I have gone wrong? Tasty good! Tarragon, lemon thyme, oregano and mint would have been a really nice addition along with the parsley. I also added more lemon juice. Onions are a must so don't omit them. I did add lots of black pepper and a touch of salt. Thanks for a tasty salad.The leftovers do produce a lovely red color. ;)
I used fresh local beets and replaced feta with myzithra for a change. Fresh herb in the garden. Next time, I'll substitute part golden beets for the red ones to add more color. Reviewed for Veg Tag September.
Nice no-cook lunch for a hot summer's day. I think the feta really pulled it all together nicely. I used red delicious apples, as that's all I had on hand, but I think it would be much better with granny smiths. Thanks for posting!
DH enjoyed this salad for lunch. He did said that he would have enjoyed it more without the feta. Made for Everyday is a Holiday Tag
One of the best salads I've made and tasted in ages. I used a 400g can of diced Golden Circle beetroot (Aussies) which I drained and gave a quick rinse (stops the beetroot "bleeding" all over everything else. I also used a 400g ish can of chickpeas as it's what I always buy. This salad is super quick to prepare and basically made from ingredients we always have on hand, it requires no cooking plus it got rave reviews from the family-what a winner.
Loved all the textures and flavors in this salad. The crunch of the sweet apple and the salty sharpness of the feta are such a complement to the earth flavors of the chickpeas and beats. With the parsley and lemon giving it a fresh edge. Made using canned diced beats we do not have vacuum packed beats were I live. Also used raspberry balsamic vinegar instead of red wine vinegar. Thanks so much for the post.
