Beets Oranges and Mint Salad
Just a little glimpse of our box, you can see the beet leaf.
Peel and slice the beets.
Place beets into a oven safe baking dish.I used my cast iron pan but any oven proof pan would work well. Toss with extra virgin olive oil.
Season with salt and pepper.
Add 1/4 cup or water and place into a 375 degree oven until soft when poked with a skewer. About 45 minutes. Cool to room temperature.
Segment 2 oranges. Cut off a little bit of the top and bottom then follow the edges just past the pith in the shape of the orange to remove skin.
Slice orange next to the veins with a sharp knife to segment.
Add oranges to the beets in a bowl. Squeeze left over center of the orange over the beets to remove the juice.
Chop and add mint.
Squeeze 1 lime over the top.
Add salt and pepper. Yes the pictures sideways for some reason when I correct it, it wouldn't load so for my own sanity I left it! That's life!
