Apple, Beet and Stilton Salad

This colorful, delicious and easy salad gets a big convenience boost from ready-to-use Earthbound Farm Organic Apple Slices.

The apple's juicy crunch complements the earthy sweetness of roasted beets, while the Stilton adds a creamy, tangy dimension. The beets can be prepared a day ahead and refrigerated, covered.

4 Servings



red or gold beets (roasted and peeled)

1 Tbsp

cider vinegar


shallot (peeled and thinly sliced)

1 tsp

Dijon mustard

3 Tbsp

extra-virgin olive oil

Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

4 oz

Earthbound Farm Organic Apple Slices (or 1 large Earthbound Farm Organic Apple, cut into 1/4-inch slices)

5 oz

Earthbound Farm Organic Spring Mix (about 8 cups)

½ cup

crumbled Stilton cheese

½ cup

toasted pecans or walnuts (optional)


Cut the roasted beets in half lengthwise, and then slice them crosswise into 1/4-inch thick slices. Transfer the beet slices to a small bowl and set aside.

Place the cider vinegar in a small glass jar and add the shallot. Let the mixture sit for 10 minutes, then add the mustard and oil, plus salt and pepper to taste. Place a lid on the jar and shake vigorously to combine the dressing. Drizzle 1 tablespoon of the vinaigrette over the beets.

Place the greens in a large bowl and add half of the remaining vinaigrette, tossing to coat the lettuce. Divide the greens among 4 salad plates. Top each serving with some of the beets, apples, cheese and nuts, if using. Drizzle with the remaining vinaigrette and serve immediately.
