Another favourite at our Midsummer table is Apple & Beet Salad. As a spread on a slice of hard bread or the base of an open face meatball sandwich, the table wouldn’t be complete without it!
Okay, let’s see how it’s made
This is what you’ll need:
- 2 cups pickled beets (drained)
- 2 Granny Smith apples (cored and chopped)
- 1/2 white onion
- 5-6 sweet gherkins
- 1/3 cup celery (chopped)
- 1/2 cup sour cream
Oh, and a food processor (or blender)
Add the apples to the food processor
Blend for about 1 minute
Now, add the beets
now add the gherkins
Yup, you guessed it … BLEND!
Onions! (ignore that man in the background … my father in law … and those are scissors in his hand, not walking around with a knife)
did someone say BLEND?
okay, add the celery
… wait for it … wait for it ….
Keep this blending going until you have a pretty smooth mixture
finally, add the sour cream
I think you know what I’m going to say …
BLEND! (until smooth)
Should look like this!
Just serve it in a bowl (make sure your guests know it’s not ice cream!)
So there you have it, our lovely Midsummer Apple & Beet Salad
Glad Midsommar and Bon Apetit!
