Oktoberfest was supposed to start this weekend in Munich, Germany. However, it's been cancelled. But that doesn't mean you still can't celebrate with some traditional German recipes. I took this rote beete salat (or German red beet salad) and put my own spin on it.
2-3 fresh cooked beets (you can also buy pre-cooked packs of beets at Costco)
Half a red onion, sliced
1 gala apple, chopped into bite-sized chunks
Handful of micro-greens
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
¼ tsp salt
If you're cooking the beets yourself, you'll want to get a large saucepan and fill it with water.
Place the skinned beets in the water and bring to a boil. Once boiled, turn the heat down low and simmer for 30 minutes or until tender.
Remove the beets from the water, pat dry and slice into bite size chunks, or however you like.
Place the beets in a large salad bowl with the onion, apple, micro-greens, vinegar, oil, and salt. Then mix well.
Eat right away before everything turns hot pink, or place it in the fridge for a while if you don't mind that everything turns hot pink.
