  • 4 lb trimmed beets (without tops) unpeeled
  • 1 Tbsp. red wine vinegar
  • 12 x oranges rind and pith cut free with a serrated knife and sections cut away from the membranes
  • 1 tsp freshly-grated orange zest
  • 1/3 c. fresh orange juice
  • 1/4 c. sugar
  • 1/2 c. distilled vinegar
  • 1/2 c. extra-virgin extra virgin olive oil Kosher salt to taste Freshly-grnd black pepper to taste
  • 2 x red onions thinly sliced Minced fresh flat-leaf parsley for garnish


  1. In a pot, combine the beets with the red wine vinegar and sufficient cool water to cover them by 2 inches. Bring to a boil, lower the heat, and simmer till tender, about 40 min. Drain the beets and let them cold. (The beets may be cooked 1 day in advance and kept covered and chilled.) Peel the beets and cut them into 1-inch wedges.
  2. In a small saucepan, combine zest, orange juice, sugar, and vinegar and boil the mix till it is reduced to about 1/4 c.. Let the mix cold.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the orange mix, oil, and salt and pepper to create a smooth dressing. Add in the beet slices, orange segments, and onion and mix till well combined. Let stand at room temperature, or possibly chill for up to 6 hrs, to let the flavors come together. Transfer to a serving bowl and garnish with the parsley.
  4. This recipe yields about 8 servings.
