What You Need

  • 11/2 pounds beets
  • 2 cups shredded beet greens
  • 1 large orange
  • 2 apples, peeled, cored and sliced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon raspberry vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted sunflower seeds, toasted (optional)

Make It

Wash and dry beet roots and greens. Shred greens to measure 2 cups and set aside. Place beets in a sauce pan with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes or until tender. Drain and allow to cool. Trim and peel off skins; cut into 8 wedges. Peel and section the orange. In a bowl, combine orange sections, beets and apples. Whisk together olive oil, vinegar (may replace with white vinegar and a little bit of raspberry jam), sugar, salt and garlic. Pour over beet mixture and toss well. Arrange 1/2 cup beet greens (or any other type of salad greens) on 4 salad plates. Top with beet mixture, sprinkle with sunflower seeds and serve.
