Beet, Apple, and Walnut Salad
A salad both elegant and inventive. Decrease preparation time by roasting and dicing the beets the day before and refrigerating them in an airtight container.
Why This Recipe Works
In this Beet, Apple, and Walnut Salad recipe, we found that roasting the beets gave them the sweetest, deepest flavor. We prevented the apples in the recipe from browning after being sliced by simply rubbing them with a little lemon juice. And walnuts lent the Beet, Apple, and Walnut Salad a slight bitterness—but they are high in fat and burn quickly when toasting. To prevent this, we stirred them frequently and paid close attention to them as they toasted.
