The comfort of apples: healthy citrus beet and apple salad


- 2 bunches of beets
- 2 cinnamon sticks
- 10 allspice berries
- 6 whole cloves
- Cooking spray or 1 teaspoon of olive oil
- 4 tablespoons of pine nuts
- 1/2 teaspoon of curry powder
- 1/4 teaspoon of salt
- 1 cup high quality olive oil
- 1 1/2 cup of unsweetened
- salt and pepper to taste
- 6 small to medium apples
- 2 cups diced red onion
- 2 avocadoes
- 1/2 pound of blue cheese


Step 1:

Prepare beets according to the directions in How to cook and peel beets. Let beets cool. Then dice and set aside.

Step 2:

Heat a small sauté pan over medium heat. Spray with a cooking spray or add 1 teaspoon of olive oil to lightly coat the pan.

Step 3:

Pour the pine nuts into the heated pan and fry until golden, about 3 to 4 minutes. Toss or stir frequently and make sure not to burn them!

Step 4:

Place 1/4 teaspoon of salt and the curry powder in a small bowl. Add the toasted pine nuts and toss with a spoon to cover. Set aside.

Step 5:

In a small bowl whisk olive oil with grapefruit juice. Set aside. Cut the apples into 1/4 inch dice. Place apples along with beets and onions in a large salad bowl.

Step 6:

Gently toss with the dressing. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour. Before serving, cut the avocado into thin slices.

Step 7:

Divide the salad among 8 bowls or plates. Insert an avocado slice or two evenly throughout the salad.

Step 8:

Or serve on the side or across the top. The idea is to have a little avocado with each bite. Sprinkle with blue cheese and curried pine nuts.
