Ruby Red Beet & Apple Salad Recipe

Ruby Red Beet & Apple Salad Recipe

Because I grow beets I eat them a lot. This is among my favorite recipes. One heads-up: The beets usually turn the apples pinkish-red (maybe your fingers, too). — Kathy Rairigh, Milford, Indiana
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. + cooling Cook: 35 min. + chilling YIELD:12 servings


  • 2-1/2 pounds fresh beets (about 8 medium)
  • 2 medium apples, peeled and chopped
  • 1 cup chopped fresh kale
  • 1 cup chopped red cabbage
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon each ground ginger, garlic powder and pepper


  • 1. Scrub beets and trim tops to 1 in. Place in a Dutch oven; add water to cover. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, covered, 30-60 minutes or until tender. Remove from the water; cool.
  • 2. Peel beets and cut into 1/2-in. cubes. In a large bowl, combine the apples, kale, cabbage, carrots, onion and beets.
  • 3. In a small bowl, whisk the remaining ingredients. Pour over salad; toss to coat. Refrigerate, covered, for at least 4 hours or until chilled, stirring occasionally. Yield: 12 servings.

"We enjoyed the Ruby Red & Apple salad last night. I also tried a new recipe for Scotch Eggs (with chorizo & bulk sausage). I made a half recipe of the salad...used Tuscan kale and a Granny Smith apple along with the other ingredients. Curry was an interesting taste twist. All of the tastes went well with the baked Scotch Eggs."

"Pretty good. Might play around with that curry spice, I did add some fresh garlic to the dressing. Also right before eating, sprinkled on some blue cheese crumbles and toasted walnuts. Pretty good!"
