Beet, Orange, and Apple Salad

Inspiration:
Tim's newfound love of beets and allrecipes.com

Ingredients:
  • 1 1/2 pounds beets
  • 2 cups shredded beet greens
  • 1 large orange
  • 2 Granny Smith apples - peeled, cored
  • and sliced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon raspberry vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon white sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted sunflower seeds, toasted

Instructions:
  1. Wash and dry beet roots and greens. Shred greens to measure 2 cups and set aside.
  2. Place beets in a sauce pan with enough water to cover. Bring to boil, cover, reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes or until tender. Drain and allow to cool.
  3. Trim and peel off skins; cut into 8 wedges.
  4. Peel and section orange. In a bowl, combine orange sections, beets and apples.
  5. Whisk together olive oil, vinegar, sugar, salt and garlic. Pour over beet mixture and toss well.
  6. Arrange 1/2 cup beet greens on 4 salad plates. Top with beet mixture, sprinkle with sunflower seeds and serve.

Notes: Loved this recipe. It's not for beginners--kind of time consuming--but it's delicious. Next time I'll double the dressing recipe and keep the salad ingredients the same. I may also add in an extra orange.

I used to work on this feature. We agree that authorising Gmail-to-Gmail mail fetching is kind of a mess right now - fixing it properly has never quite reached the top of our todo list because it's a rare use case. The right fix is for Gmail to use XOAUTH to fetch from other Gmail accounts, this would resolve the security issues that this system is preventing whilst giving a much better user experience.
