Beet and Orange salad

People can be so sweet Dh's partner's wife showed up here a few minutes ago with a beautiful orange and beet salad. I'd never thought to pair the two so I'm anxious to see what it tastes like. It's just simply roasted small beets cut into slices, several oranges peeled and sliced, she dressed it all with evoo,lemon salt and pepper and several tab. of fresh chopped mint. It looks wonderful can hardly wait for the lunch bell

Smile Beet And Orange Salad

That was very nice of her to bring over the salad. I know that I would not like it but everyone has different tastes.

Have a nice day.

We actually serve a very popular salad at the restaurant, using orange supremes, roasted baby golden beets, a spring greens mix, and dressed with a sherry-orange vinagrette. Topped with some very thinly sliced fresh fennel and a couple of roasted spicy pecans. It's a very tasty salad!

I'll second that! Beetroot and citrus fruits go very well together.
In my memory banks ( somewhat dusty, at times) I have a Mario Batali creation which was something like Bresaola ( slices of air-dried beef); beetroot, lentils, and a honey-citrus dressing.
