Healthy Marinated Beet and Apple Salad



  • 4 medium Beets
  • 1 Granny Smith Apple
  • 1 large Banana Pepper (optional)
  • 1/4 cup olive or avocado oil
  • 1/4 cup Red Wine Vinegar or Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 tsp gluten free worcestershire sauce (use Tamari Sauce with 1/4 tsp apple cider vinegar if vegan)
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt and black pepper (each)
  • 1/4 tsp dry mustard or 1 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1/4 tsp paprika or cayenne
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar or raw sugar
  • Optional bed of lettuce, spinach, etc. to place salad on.
  • Optional toppings : Herbs of choice, 1/4 cup optional sunflower or pumpkin seeds, nuts, peppercorns to top.


  1. First wash your beets.
  2. Steam in 1 inch water and dash of sea salt for 20 minutes at medium high heat on stove top.
  3. Once beets are softened and steamed, you can easily peel them and chop into quarters.
  4. Slice your apple thin (remove core)  and combine with beets in a large mixing bowl. If you want to add banana pepper, chop and add here with apples and beets. Set aside.
  5. In another small bowl, combine your sugar, salt, and the rest of your seasoning. Set aside.
  6. Drizzle the oil, vinegar, and tamari or worcestershire sauce mixture over beets and apples and peppers. Then add in your seasonings and toss all together in mixing bowl.
  7. Place in fridge for 1 hr up to 24 hrs to marinate.
  8. Remove from fridge and add optional nuts and any additional herbs/peppercorns that you desire. You can also place the beet and apple salad on a bed of lettuce before serving. Drizzle with extra marinade if needed.
  9. Serve and enjoy! You can also add goat cheese for texture/flavor. It’s all great!


  • If you are vegan, use 1 tsp tamari sauce plus 1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar in place of worcestershire sauce.
