Beet roots contain a wealth of nutrients that support your health.  They are a unique source of betaine, an anti-inflammatory phytonutrient which helps protect the body from free-radical damage and environmental stress. Beets also contain natural nitrates that are converted into nitric oxide in the body. This substance can help lower blood pressure by relaxing and dilating the blood vessels while also boosting stamina by reducing the oxygen cost of exercise. 

To save time, you can roast your beets ahead of time and store in the fridge until you are ready to prepare the dish.

    Looks like a great dish! Love your pretty in pink title!!!
    I’ve heard beets have great health benefits, I really should try eating them, maybe I’ll like them better as an adult, LOL

    • Dr. Jennifer L. Weinberg, MD, MPH, MBE

      Thank you! They can be a strong taste. Have you tried golden beets? I find that they tend to be sweeter and less earthy. Also the apple in this salad helps to balance the flavor. Hope you have a great week!

    This is such a nice salad! I love that it makes the taste of the beets more subtle with the naturally sweet apples. I loved it! Thank you.
