DIRECTIONS

  • Prepare a grill for medium high heat; thoroughly clean grates and brush with oil. Grill whole, unpeeled beets, covered, turning every 10 minutes, until tender and a skewer or cake tester can easily slide into the center, 40-50 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl and cover tightly with plastic wrap and let steam for 30 minutes. Using a paper towel, rub beet to remove skin (it should slip off easily, wear gloves to avoid staining your hands). Trim root end and cut beets into wedges.
  • Meanwhile, grill oranges and lemons, turning once, until fruit is caramelized and peel is charred, 8 to 10 minutes.
  • Toss beets with a squeeze of the grilled citrus, a drizzle of olive oil, some flaky sea salt, and freshly ground black pepper. Top with mint, chives and toasted sesame seeds.
