Recipe Home > Salads > Citrus Beet Salad with Avocado Lime Dressing





Ingredients


for the salad:



  • 3 medium/large red beets

  • 3 medium/large golden beets

  • 2 navel oranges (or any variety)

  • 1 grapefruit (Ruby suggested), optional

  • Greens of choice (I used a mix of baby romaine and blanched beet greens)

  • Avocado Lime Dressing (below)


 


for the dressing (makes ~2/3 cup):



  • 1/2 cup avocado flesh

  • 1/4 cup coconut cream (the cream from the top of the can)

  • 5 tbsp fresh lime juice, or to taste

  • 1 tbsp agave nectar (or other liquid sweetener)

  • 2 tbsp fresh orange juice

  • 1 tsp grapefruit juice (optional)

  • tiny pinch of salt


 


 


 


Directions


1. Preheat the oven to 425F. Trim both ends of each beet and wash well. Place a few beets on a large piece of tin foil. Drizzle with oil and wrap up. Do the same for the other 3 beets on another sheet of foil. Place on a baking sheet and roast for 45-75 minutes, until a fork pricks through fairly easy. Check beets after 30 mins of roasting, and every 15 minutes thereafter. Cooking time will depend on the size…mine took 60-75 minutes.


2. With oven mitts on, carefully open the tin foil and allow to cool for 5-10 minutes. Now peel off the skin and discard. Slice beets into wedges.


3. While the beets roast, prepare the citrus. De-pith and slice into segments (as shown in post). Set aside. Reserve the scraps of juicy flesh as you can use this to squeeze into your dressing.


4. Blend the dressing ingredients together in a processor. I used my mini processor and it worked well. Adjust seasonings to taste, adding more sweetener, juice, or salt if desired.


5. To assemble, add greens (I used a mix of blanched beet greens and baby romaine), followed by the beets and citrus segments, top with nuts, seeds, and/or cooked grains, and finally the dressing.
