Roasted Beet Citrus Salad

This colourful salad is a light side dish to complement any meal. 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. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Wrap beets individually in aluminum foil and place on a baking sheet. Roast until beets are tender when pressed through the foil and a knife slides easily into them when unwrapped: 50-60 minutes. When cool enough to handle, unwrap beets, rub each with a paper towel to remove their skins, and slice.
  2. Whisk all the vinaigrette ingredients together in a large bowl.
  3. Add arugula to the bowl and toss with the dressing. Add the beets, oranges, and grapefruit, and toss a few more times to combine. Top with sliced almonds or pecans, and serve.
