  • 3 small red beets

  • 3 small pink beets

  • 3 small yellow beets

  • Olive oil

  • Salt and pepper

  • Juice of ½ a lemon

  • Juice of ½ an orange

  • 3 tbsp balsamic vinegar

  • 3 tbsp honey

  • 1 large orange

  • 1 cup arugula



  1. Place the small red beets on a sheet of tinfoil, then add olive oil, salt and pepper.

  2. Mix the beets with your hands, until they are fully coated.

  3. Wrap the beets tightly with the foil, then place on a sheet pan.

  4. Repeat steps 1-3 with the small pink beets and the small yellow beets.

  5. Bake the beets at 425 degrees Fahrenheit for 45-60 minutes.

  6. Remove the beets from the oven. Slice off the ends, and use a paper towel to remove the skin (it should come off easily.) Then, slice the beets up into chunks. Once the beets are peeled and chopped, set them aside.

  7. Make the dressing. In a glass mixing bowl, combine lemon juice, orange juice, balsamic vinegar and honey and whisk together.

  8. As you whisk, slowly pour in half a cup of olive oil and add a dash of salt, to taste. Set the dressing aside.

  9. Peel the orange, keeping the rind to use as a zest. Then slice the orange into wedges.

  10. Add 1 cup of arugula to a large salad bowl, then top with the beets and sliced orange.

  11. Top with the dressing and garnish with orange zest. Enjoy!
