I am always on the lookout for different salads and I really enjoyed this one. What a great idea for salad dressing and I really like the beats and apples together. I also steamed some sliced, slant-cut carrots to top the dressing with right before adding the dressing.

When I read the ingredients for this salad I knew right away it would make it into our regular rotation. Everything blended nicely. I was a little afraid of tossing all the dressing with the salad, so I just put it in a jar. I'm glad I did, the dressing, while delicious, is a little sweet, it didn't need much to give the salad a nice coating. I wasn't trilled about the beets, I like them ok, but they tasted very "earthy" to me. I tried it the next day without the beets and I liked it better. Maybe all that dressing is to balance out the beets? I wonder if I were to coat the beets in dressing before adding them to the salad if it would make it better? I think I will try that next time. Love the pecans, they really brought the salad to life! On of my kids ate it, the other didn't. I will definitely be making this salad again.

I made this salad one hundred percent to introduce my child to beets and see what she thought. She ate them. She liked them. In that way this salad was a success. I liked it but found as a "meal salad" it made basically three servings for my family and not six (I guess we are big eaters? I know the husband and I are...). As a result I found it to be a little high in sugars for my liking (it ended up around 28 g). I will definitely make it again but next time I will serve it more as a salad than as a main course or, perhaps, try and find something less sugary to replace the apple house. That said anything which gets my daughter to eat beets chicken and pecans is a winner it my (recipe)book.
