I'm very picky when it comes to beets, but this is pretty yummy. Be careful when playing with beets...they stain everything!


  1. Scrub beets and boil until tender-crisp (about 10 minutes).
  2. Take out of water and slip skins off.
  3. Mix juices, vinegar, water, sugar, orange zest and cinnamon in a large pot and bring to simmer.
  4. Slice beets in egg slicer and drop into simmering liquid.
  5. Simmer until beets are very tender (about 5 minutes).
  6. Drop sliced red onion into liquid for last 2 minutes.
  7. Drain beets and onions and reserve 1//2 cup of liquid.
  8. Section oranges and place in bowl along with beets and onion.
  9. Combine reserved liquid with salt& fresh ground pepper.
  10. Drizzle oil in slowly while whisking.
  11. Toss dressing with beets onions and oranges.
  12. Chill.
  13. Serve over a bed of butter or baby lettuces.
