  • 2 medium fresh beets
  • 1 package (5 ounces) mixed salad greens
  • 2 medium navel oranges, peeled and sliced
  • 1 small fennel bulb, halved and thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup chopped hazelnuts, toasted
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons grated orange zest
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder


  1. Preheat oven to 425°. Cut slits in beets; place on a baking sheet. Bake until tender, about 1 hour. When cool enough to handle, peel beets and cut into wedges. Divide greens among salad plates; top with beets, oranges, fennel and hazelnuts. Combine dressing ingredients in a jar with a tight-fitting lid; shake well. Drizzle over salads.
