About Local Food

Qualla Berry Farm is part of a loose community of growers and marketers throughout western NC who are seeking to provide locally grown food to people who live and visit  the mountains. We are helping to develop ways to keep our rural land in agricultural production. We are listed in the Local Food Guide produced by the Appalachian Sustainable Agriculture Project.

Beet Salad with Ginger Dressing

  • beets (about 2 pounds), scrubbed
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar, preferably white
  • 1 tablespoon finely grated fresh ginger
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup shelled pistachios, toasted and chopped
  1. STEP 1

    Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Wrap beets in parchment-lined foil and place on a rimmed baking sheet. Roast until tender, 45 to 60 minutes. Let cool briefly, then rub with a paper towel to remove skins. Cut into 3/4-inch wedges.

  2. STEP 2

    In a large bowl, whisk together oil, vinegar, and ginger; season with salt and pepper. Toss beets in dressing and sprinkle with pistachios.
