Ingredients

3 beetroots 380 g
1 apples, green, Granny Smith type 180 g
2 tbsp Classic Vinaigrette 30 mL
1 pinch salt [optional] 0.2 g
ground pepper to taste [optional]

Method

  1. Prepare the beets: boil or steam them about 25-30 min. Let the beets cool down a few minutes, then peel them and dice into 1,5 cm pieces. Transfer the pieces to a salad bowl.
  2. Cut the apples into 1,5 cm cubes, without peeling them, but removing the core. Add the apples to the beets in the salad bowl.
  3. Pour in the Classic Vinaigrette, then season with salt and pepper. Toss well then serve.

Remarks

The beets may be cooked a few day in advance.
