Beet-and-Apple Salad

Ingredients

· 4 large beets (2 1/2 pounds)· 5 thyme sprigs· 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling· Salt and freshly ground pepper· 1/4 cup apple-cider vinegar· 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard· 3 tablespoons prepared horseradish· 1/3 cup salted pistachios, chopped· 1 green apple, thinly sliced

Instructions

Step 1Preheat the oven to 375°. In a baking dish, lightly drizzle the beets and thyme with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Cover with foil and roast until the beets are tender, about 1 hour and 45 minutes. Let cool, then peel the beets and cut them into 3/4-inch dice. In a large bowl, whisk the vinegar with the mustard. Whisk in the remaining 1/2 cup of oil until emulsified. Add the horseradish and season with salt and pepper; toss with the beets and pistachios. Transfer the beets to a platter, top with the apple and serve.
