Winter Beet Salad Recipe

To save a little time, our Test Kitchen home economists recommend using packaged salad greens in this original recipe. The simple dressing is easy to assemble.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 1 hour + cooling YIELD:4 servings


  • 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 peel
  • 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. Yield: 4 servings.
Editor's Note: To toast nuts, bake in a shallow pan in a 350° oven for 5-10 minutes or cook in a skillet over low heat until lightly browned, stirring occasionally.

"This was a fantastic tasting salad. Definitely worth the time to prepare. I cooked the beets a little longer than an hour just to make sure they were as tender as could be. The blend of flavors was amazing and I had rave reviews all around."
