Amazing Beet Salad

Posted by: admin in: ● November 14, 2010

1/2 pound beets
3 tablespoons freshly squeezed orange juice
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoon minced chives, mint or parsley (or a combination)
Salt to taste

Peel the beets and grate in a food processor using the shredding blade. Combine the orange juice, lemon juice and olive oil in a large mixing bowl. Add the beets and herbs and toss with the citrus dressing. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Here’s the important part… still with me??? Place in an airtight container and let it sit in the refrigerator for AT LEAST 4 hours… it will keep for several days and the longer you let the flavors meld, the sweeter and more tender the beets get. Just toss well again before serving.

Serving suggestion:
Heap generous amounts onto a bed of greens lightly dressed with olive oil, and sprinkle with a bit of crumbled gorgonzola. YUM!
