Recipe: Beet Apple Salad

Beet-Apple Salad 

*An Original Recipe from Dr. Amy and Chef Eric


3 apples, peeled and shredded

6 small or 2-3 large beets, peeled and shredded

1 tsp fresh thyme, finely chopped

2 T Balsamic vinegar

2 T extra virgin olive oil

¾ tsp salt

Freshly ground pepper

3 T pumpkin seeds (optional to toast them first, could substitute with walnuts)

2 oz or ¼ cup of crumbled goat cheese (could substitute with blue cheese or feta)


Peel and shred your apples and beets into a large mixing bowl.  A box grater works fine yet you could also use a food processor.

Add the thyme, vinegar, oil, salt and pepper and give it a good stir.

Place the salad in a serving bowl then add the pumpkin seeds (or nuts) and the crumbled cheese to the top just before serving.

This recipe is great for a side dish or a meal if you add a protein on top such as cooked chicken, fish, or beans/lentils/chickpeas.

Assemble your ingredients
Shred the beets and apples
Mix in the thyme, vinegar, oil, salt and pepper
