Paul Osher of Bean and Thyme sells prepared food at the Sunday, Main St. farmers market in Santa Monica. He sources all of his ingredients from the market – including the beets and apples that he roasts and makes into a salad. (Recipe after the jump)
Here’s the basic recipe:
* Put beets into a foil package with a little olive oil and water. Roast in a 350/400 degree oven for about an hour.
* Peel and chop apples and roast separately from the beets.
* Chop the beets and toss with the apples in a vinagrette. Paul likes his dressing a little more tart than usual for this salad – he recommends using 2 parts oil to 1 part vinegar (instead of the traditional 3:1).
