Roasted Beet and Apple Salad

An easy roasted beet and apple salad with tart granny smith apples tossed in a honey mustard dressing.

This is a really simple one for you guys today. Although I’m holding strong on the no-pumpkin-until-it’s-legitimately-fall wagon, I’m fine doing the apple thing right now (they are in season after all).

Unless it’s apple pie, apples are like the one fruit I could pretty much live without for the rest of my life and be ok with. They’re an underwhelming fruit if you ask me.

Granny Smith’s are about the only ones I truly enjoy in their plain/not in a pie form (ok, and a good Honeycrisp too) and so that’s what we’re talking about today.

Those tart little suckers are tossed with roasted beets that have become deliciously candy-like, a honey mustard dressing and salted pistachios. If your husband didn’t eat all the goat cheese, I suggest you throw some of that on top too. I’m considering a sign out sheet attached to the front of the fridge. Any foods finished by significant others must be documented from here on out to avoid mid-day outage discoveries and pissed off wives. Sounds reasonable, no?

Head on over to Rachel’s to grab the recipe where I’m sharing it for her month long Apple A Day party.

Thank you SO much for sharing your salad. Seriously it brought back memories of one I wanted to try so badly before my cooking days!

I just had beets for the first time a little while ago. So yummy! Definitely a lot better than they look. This looks like a perfectly fresh and tasty salad!
