Citrus Beet Salad

Makes 4 side salads



  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 3 small-medium beets
  • 2 navel oranges (one for salad, one for dressing)
  • big bunch of greens


  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp orange juice, or to taste
  • 1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • salt and pepper to taste



  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Scrub beets and slice off both ends. Place beets on a piece of tin foil, drizzle with 1 tsp olive oil and wrap into a packet. Place packet on baking sheet. Bake for 45 min, or until fork tender. Once cooked, set aside to cool.
  3. Meanwhile, segment one orange (for a how-to click here) and juice the other for dressing.
  4. In a bowl, whisk together ingredients for dressing, set aside.
  5. Remove skins off beets by rubbing with paper towel, or using a knife. Slice beets into pieces about the same size as orange segments. Plate your greens and top with beet and orange pieces.
