WARM BEET SALAD WITH GREEN BEANS AND ALMONDS (beet, grilled green beans and almonds)
6 medium organic red beets, unpeeled
¼ cup (60ml) of olive oil
3/4 lb (340g) green beans
2 tablespoon (30g) of chopped almonds
2 tablespoon (30ml) apple ice cider vinegar
Salt and pepper
Place beets in a large pot and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil and simmer gently for about 1 hour or until beets are tender. Drain and place in cold water. Peel and cut each beet into 8 wedges. Place on a large serving platter.
Meanwhile, in a skillet, brown the green beans in 1 tablespoon (15ml) of oil until crisp. Add almonds and mix thoroughly. Scatter beans and almond over beets.
In a small bowl, combine apple ice cider vinegar and remaining olive oil. Drizzle over salad. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper.
