Roasted Beet Citrus Salad

This colourful salad is a light side dish to complement your fall meals. The sweetness of roasted beets is perfectly balanced by tart grapefruits and spicy/zesty arugula for a vibrant salad bursting with flavours. Feel free to substitute arugula with baby kale, spinach, or other greens of choice.


  1. Roast the beets: Preheat the oven to 375°F. Wrap beets individually in aluminum foil and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Roast until beets are tender when pressed through the foil and a knife slides easily into them when unwrapped: 50 to 60 minutes. When cool enough to handle, unwrap beets, rub each with a paper towel to remove skins, and slice.
  2. Mix all the vinaigrette ingredients in a large bowl.
  3. When ready to serve, add arugula to the bowl and toss to fully coat with the dressing. Add the sliced beets, oranges, and grapefruit, and toss a few more times to combine. Top with almond or pecan slices, and enjoy!
