Apple and Beet Salad with Gorgonzola

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

The wonderful thing about beets is the glorious color! And the problem with beets IS all that color. Everything, repeat everything will be beet color. But please, don't let that stop you from eating and enjoying beets.

This apple beet salad is a fine example of all the glorious color, yet there is no problem with all that color because this is a beautiful bowl of salad. But the taste is even better! Vibrant, crisp and a little touch of tart...

  1. Beets freak me out. I've only tried them once when I was around 5 years old. Didn't like them then. My grandma used to call them purple pickles.

  2. I love beets! I know I would love this!

  3. Sounds delicious. I was not expecting, not would I have thought of adding the dill pickle, but sure why not.
