This is a beautiful and delicious salad. This is also very nice and a bit milder served with Golden Delicious Apples.

ingredients

directions

  • Wash the beets, but do not peel.
  • Place in a very deep pot and cover with cold water until floating. Bring to a boil, cut back to a simmer and cook for about 40 minutes or until tender when pierced with a sharp knife. Note - Beets can be a bit messy and stain terribly. By using a very deep pot you won’t have as much splattering.
  • While the beets are cooking, make the salad dressing by combining the ingredients above starting with the shallot and ending with the freshly ground pepper. Shake well.
  • Chop the red onion, slice the green apple, place them in a large bowl and toss with the salad dressing and the feta cheese.
  • When beets are done, cool, peel, cut in half and then slice thinly.
  • Toss with the apples, onion and cheese mixture.
  • Garnish with the scallions and dill.
  • Enjoy!

    I had a can of beets I wanted to use up, so I tried this for a BBQ. I think it turn out ok, but I'm not sure I was crazy about the horseradish and dressing. I left out the celery seed and used Durkee's instead of the mustard, but otherwise stuck to the recipe. A few of my guests said said they liked it, but it didn't get gobbled up like the other side dishes. Not sure I would make this one again.

    Very good salad! Wasn't too sure about the combination, but it does have everything we like! I'm sorry I didn't have a red onion to use (was sure I had one in the onion basket!) so had to use a brown one. Tasted much better today, after everything had a chance to mellow! Also used canned sliced beets, well drained! Also, couldn't find the fresh dill to garnish (comes back to my inability to find fresh herbs in my area!). I guess I really need to grow my own! Everything else was used per your directions. Will make this again, as we love beets, and this time I'll be sure I have the red onion. Thnx for sharing your recipe, Karen. Made for PAC Fall 2009.
