Citrus and shaved root salad
Experience the winning pair of beets and citrus in this fresh, light and highly wholesome salad.
Beet and citrus is a winning combo. The brightness of any citrus fruit just lifts the earthiness of beets to a delicious level, like with these beet and orange popsicles. This salad adds in some other roots to take that combo in a fun new direction. The key to this salad is to get the beets shaved as thinly as possible. Almost paper thin.
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1/2 teaspoon white wine vinegar
- 3 radishes
- 1 large beetroot, peeled
- 3 tangerines
- 1/3 cup arugula
- Sea salt

Using a mandolin, thinly shave the beetroot and radishes on the thinnest setting.
Peel the tangerines, separating the slices, and removing as many seeds as possible.
Add the tangerines, arugula, and radishes to a large mixing bowl.
Add in the lemon juice and vinegar, toss until completely coated.
Salt and pepper to taste.
Fold in the shaved beets.
Chill and serve.
