I'm a beet lover ... and if you are, you will love this too. This is a great salad or a simple side dish which I have served it both ways. A mix of red and golden beets, pan sauteed and topped with an onion, fennel and orange relish. Serve this over a bed of spinach or other greens for a wonderful salad, or serve this as is - for a perfect side dish - sweet and tangy all in one. If you can only get red beets, that's fine. My local market and my farmers markets usually carry both red and golden and you can use one or the other, or a combination. Mandarin oranges are perfect for this, sweet, pre-segmented and ready to use, I actually prefer them over fresh in this dish. The beets are steamed and then sauteed, tossed with the vinaigrette and topped with the fresh relish. Note: This vinaigrette is great ... not only in this dish, but also over fish, scallops, green beans, asparagus, roasted cauliflower, chicken, pork or any of your favorite greens.
