Ingredients

For the salad:

  • 1 bunch 1 bunch beets about 3 medium beets)
  • 2 ounces goat cheese crumbled
  • 1/2 medium orange peel removed, sliced width-wise, and cut into triangles
  • 1/4 cup pepitas

For the dressing:

  • 2 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon fresh orange juice
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions 

Prepare the beets:

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Remove the beet greens from the beets and set aside. Scrub the beets and wrap well in aluminum foil. Place on a rimmed baking sheet and roast in the oven for one hour or until the tip of a knife is inserted easily into the beets. Remove from the oven and cool slightly.
  • When the beets are cool enough to handle, rub each one with a paper towel to remove the skins and slice on a cutting board.

Prepare the salad:

  • Wash the beet greens thoroughly to remove all of the grit. Blot dry with a towel and tear into pieces in a large bowl. Add the sliced beets (you will more than likely only need 1), the goat cheese, and orange.

Prepare the dressing:

  • Place the vinegar, orange juice, honey, dijon, salt and pepper, to taste in a small bowl. While whisking, drizzle in the olive oil.
  • Add enough dressing to coat the salad and toss to combine. Sprinkle with pepitas, serve, and enjoy!

Notes

  • Reserve the remaining beets for future salads!
  • If you like mutli-colored beets, you can buy one bunch with beet greens, buy a couple of bunches and scale this recipe to feed a crowd. I also find beets at my grocery store sold individually with no greens attached to make buying more colors even easier.
