1Wash your beets until they are clean. Remove any of the green stem section. Poke tiny holes on each beet. Place in a deep baking dish (the beet juice will run off a cookie sheet). Coat with 2 Tablespoons of olive oil and bake in an oven of 350 degrees for 60 minutes or until the largest beet is soft enough for a knife or fork to pierce it.
2While the beets are baking make your dressing and place in the refrigerator. I used 1/4 cup olive oil, 1/4 cup red wine vinegar and a 1/4 cup of a pre made balsamic dressing.
3Let the beets cool until you can touch them. Peel the beets and dice into bite size cubes
4Peel the apples Cut into wedges and cut the wedges into 3 chunks
5Clean and slice the strawberries bite size slices. NOT TOO THIN
6Chop up candied nuts
7Mix everything together and toss with dressing
I toss mine lightly as I don't like a heavy dressing however mix to your liking
