Apple and Beetroot salad

9 comments Feb 5th, 2010 | By | Category: Recipes, Salads and Dressings

The nice thing about this salad is the dressing. The mix of sesame oil and W gives it an Asian touch. I marinate the beetroot for a couple of hours in the dressing. I like it a bit spicy, especially in winter. The combination of apple and beet root is classic,  though not often found here in Greece. After trying this version I decided to serve the apple and beetroot on a bed of salad, which gave it more colour and volume.

Preparation time: 15 minutes

simple recipe


  • an apple
  • a beet root
  • some Wasabi
  • 2 ts Sesame Oil
  • 3 ts white wine vinegar
  • 1 ts honey
  • Salt and Pepper
  • a hand full of sesame seeds


Mix the Wasabi, vinegar, salt and pepper in a bowl. Add the sesame oil and mix well.

Fry the sesame seeds until brown.

Peel and slice the apple and the beetroot.

Put the beetroot into the dressing and let it sit for at least 30 minutes.

Place both on a plate, pour some of the dressing over it. add some sesame seeds and serve.
