    TasteTester's Note:

    People seem to either hate or love beets -- I would guess you like them because you have chosen this recipe to look at. (The first recipe calls for canned beets; sometimes I buy fresh beets and cook them -- this variation is after the canned beet recipe.) When using the fresh beet recipe, I make the beets ahead of time to allow for cooling in the fridge and then just cut them up when assembling the salad.

      Thank you for posting this refreshingly unique salad! My best friend and I are beet fiends, and we really loved the way that the spinach and oranges complimented the earthy and sweet flavors of the beets. The colors were beautiful as well. I can't wait to make this again! I used Classic French Vinaigrette for the dressing. The poppy seed dressing might have been a little too sweet for our taste.
