- 3 Granny Smith Apples
- 4 small - medium Beets
- washed Lettuce
- washed Baby green Leaves
- 3 - 4 Tablespoons Pomegranate seeds
- 1 Purple Onion
- Brown Sugar
- 3 medium - large Carrots
- For seasoning - recipe below vinaigrette
- Fill a pot with water and place inside the beets with the skin.
- Bring the pot to a boil - then lower the fire to medium and cook for about 40 minutes, until you poke with a knife and it goes easily to the other side, at this point your beets are ready and you can turn off the flame.
- Drain the beets from the water and wait for them to cool to room temperature.
- Meanwhile - Cut the apples into half slices (without the seeds) - And arrange neatly on a baking tray lined with baking paper.
- Sprinkle, not too generously, brown sugar over the apples.
- Place in a preheated oven of 350 Fahrenheit for 10 minutes or until you see the sugar caramelize over the apples.
- Remove the apples from the oven and let them cool.
- Cut the carrots into thin strips (preferably not with a grater)
- Cut the onion into quarter-circles.
- Tear or cut the lettuce into small pieces - but not too much.
- When the beets have cooled - Peel the shell (it will drop quite easily with your hands - if you do not use a peeler) and cut it to match the thickness of approx. half an inch.
