    Sharon123's Note:

    You can start this a day ahead to marinate the beets overnight. Grate the rind of the orange before juicing it to make it easy! Adapted from Cooking Light magazine. This recipe actually has it's roots in Eastern Europe and Scandinavia-now there's fusion for ya!

      I picked up golden beets at the farmers' market specifically to prepare this salad. I added some fresh parsley and bulked up the salad with various greens: spinach, loose leaf, etc. This was our main dish and it was served with Parmesan crisps. I will try fresh mint next time or maybe basil...Orange zest was garnished on top of the salad. Thank you! Made for Veg Tag/May.

      WOW! This was a fabulous salad. I went shopping and asked my husband to remove the beets from the over after cooking for an hour as described in step 1. He forgot and removed them after 2 hours. I assumed they would be ruined but they were still firm and yummy. I added a little mint - next time I'll try basil just for fun.
