Roasted Beet Salad with Citrus Vinaigrette (Gluten-Free)


Roasted Beet Salad with Citrus Vinaigrette. Photo: CC-Laurel Fan

Slowly roasted beets are the star in this hearty winter salad. The fresh fruit segments compliment the splash of citrus in the dressing. I always try to find uses for the peel and zest—seems silly to waste all that concentrated flavor! When I can find good ones, sliced strawberries make a great addition. A delightful balance between tangy and sweet, this salad is pleasant as a starter, but also perfect on its own.

Ingredients:
6 ounces fresh baby spinach, or mixed greens
5 beets, about 2-inches in diameter
2 oranges, peeled and segmented
2 teaspoons orange zest
1 pink grapefruit, peeled and segmented
2 teaspoons grapefruit zest
¾ cup crumbled feta cheese
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
2 teaspoons honey
3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1/3 cup olive oil plus 1 tablespoon
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper

Directions:
Preheat oven to 400° F. Toss beets with olive oil. Wrap beets in a foil pouch and place directly on oven rack. Roast for about an hour, until beets are tender.

Remove from oven and carefully open pouch. Let beets cool for 20-30 minutes.

Meanwhile, whisk together balsamic vinegar, mustard, zest and honey in a small bowl. Slowly add olive oil, whisking continuously, until well combined.

Peel beets by gently rubbing off their skins. Cut into wedges and season with salt and pepper.

In a large bowl, combine spinach and beets with fruit segments. Toss with vinaigrette and top with crumbled feta.

I really like your addition of the grapefruit and feta cheese. Plain old steamed beets won't be the norm in our house after serving this Beet Salad.

Welcome! Here is a link to our Newbie 101 thread that you might find useful. I can only comment on those foods that I have in my home or have purchased. 1. Nutella is and it states it in the label. 2. Skippy PB is gluten-free (not stated, but ingrediants are). 3. ...

In the beginning, you might find ANY gluten free bread abhorrent. So, you might wait a few months to give yourself time to forget what wheat bread tasted like.

In my brief research, I did not find any public papers indicating villi blunting for Losartan specifically. There was research and a law suit on olmesartan (other celiac.com members have pointed out). Dr. Hart may have been making clinical observations or has access to medical research that is...

I did find a local store that carries the Canyon House brand and will give that a try. It can be tough as I live in a fairly rural area and we don't have a lot of the resources many of the more urban areas do. It is a 1 hour round trip just to get to the closest town with anything like a Trader ...

Hello, Often drugs that end in ?artan are ARBs, and they work by blocking the angiotensin receptors. I?m not sure what the exact difference is between the two medications you mention, though. Have you called the manufacturer of losartan to see if any of the fillers contain gluten? It might b...
