Golden Beet and Pear Salad

This is a quick and easy seasonal salad that goes with everything.  Raw beets are packed with vitamins and minerals and taste terrific as long as you slice them paper-thin.  A mandolin slicer is really handy for this.

  • 1 golden beet, peeled
  • 1 green, ripe pear
  • 2 t. apple cider vinegar
  • 1 T. apple juice
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Maldon flaked salt for garnish

Use a mandolin to slice the beet and pear into paper-thin slices.  Toss them gently in a bowl with the vinegar, apple juice, and salt and pepper.  Arrange on a serving plate and garnish with a little flaked, crunchy salt.  This salad is great served right away, and it’s best served at room temperature.
