Roasted Beet and Apple Salad

Roasted Beet, Apple, Walnut Salad

This Roasted Beet and Apple Salad is a favourite at our house. Sweet earthy beets, tart apples, bitter walnuts, lemon,  and apple cider vinegar combine all the flavour elements and some nice crunch in this delicious dish. We love this salad all year. But it’s especially welcome during the fall and winter months, because apples are newly harvested and the heartier flavour of  beets and walnuts make it so satisfying.

Beets can be roasted ahead of time, (maybe when you have something else in the oven) cooled and kept in the fridge until ready to make the salad.
