Is there any more beautiful color than the rich fuchsia and red tones of the beet?

Today’s apple beet medley is a vibrant and nutrient-packed accompaniment to any main course. Like apples, beets are terrific for healthy eating because they are a great source of dietary fiber, folate, potassium, maganese, vitamin C, iron and magnesium. Apples themselves are rich in phytochemicals, which have significant health benefits. Many researchers believe they reduce the risk of several chronic diseases, including heart disease and cancer.

This beet salad is also an award-winning healthy recipe from the Wisconsin Apple Growers Association (submitted by Diane Millner). So serve up this simple yet sophisticated side, and the compliments will fall in your lap like the jewel-toned leaves of autumn.

Makes 6 servings

3  Tart apples, chopped-enough for 3 cups
15 oz Can beets, chopped
2/3 c Walnuts, toasted and broken a little
1/4 c  Feta cheese, crumbled
3 Tbs Minced onion
2 Tbs Olive oil
2 Tbs Balsamic vinegar
1 tsp  Salt
1/2 tsp pepper

Toast walnuts in a cast iron pan for 2-3 minutes on high heat. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and serve. It’s that easy!
