Red Beet Salad with Cara Cara Orange Vinaigrette

This stunning salad is infused with bright, citrusy flavor.

Ingredients:
Roasted red beets, sliced and still warm from the oven (see recipe)
1½ cups microgreens, arugula or a combination of any mixed greens
¼ cup toasted nut of your choice, such as slivered almonds, pecans or hazelnuts

Vinaigrette:
1 shallot, peeled and minced
1 clove garlic, peeled and minced
2 teaspoons whole grain mustard
⅓ cup freshly squeezed juice from a Cara Cara orange
⅓ cup red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon honey
¾ cup olive oil
Sea salt salt and fresh ground pepper

Method:
1. To prepare the dressing: Put the shallot, garlic, and a pinch of salt in a food processor and pulse to turn into a paste. Add the mustard, vinegar, orange juice and honey, and process until smooth. If you have an opening in the top, add the oils slowly through it; if not, add tablespoons of oil in between pulsing. Taste the dressing and add any more salt if needed. You can also add a bit more honey if you like.

2. On a large serving platter, arrange the micro basil and top with the warm beet slices. Drizzle with the vinaigrette and gently toss to combine, tasting for seasoning and adding more salt and pepper if needed. Top with toasted nuts and serve.
