Beet, Orange and Apple Salad

This colorful salad uses the beet greens and the beets, along with crisp apple slices, tangy orange sections and crunchy sunflower seeds.  It’s a robust, wonderful mix of flavors that’s perfect for use of seasonal produce in early winter. Tip: If you don’t have raspberry vinegar, don’t sweat it: use your favorite sweet salad vinegar, like balsamic or sherry, instead.

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ lbs. beets
  • 2 cups torn beet greens
  • 1 large orange, peeled and sectioned
  • 2 Granny Smith apple, peeled and sliced
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp. raspberry vinegar
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 Tbsp. unsalted sunflower seeds, toasted

Directions

  2. In a bowl, combine orange sections, beets and apples.
  3. Whisk together olive oil, vinegar, salt and garlic. Pour over beet mixture and toss well.
  4. Serve out greens and top with beet mixture, sprinkle with sunflower seeds to serve.
