Cook Time with Remmi – September 2017

Hi, Amazing Kids! I hope you enjoy this recipe for Beet Salad with Apples—a delicious idea for an after-school snack. I love combining the subtle flavor of beets with sweet, crunchy apples to create a dish kids devour. And did you know that in addition to their amazing taste, beets are full of vitamins and minerals? In fact, beets contain magnesium; potassium; phosphorous; Vitamins A, B, and C; beta-carotene; and folic acid. Give this snack a try, and it just might become one of your favorites! Enjoy!
