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.

I found turmeric that had written on the packaging the "this item was farmed using the same machinery as wheat." Since I have not found a turmeric spice with this label or any other indicating it is gluten-free or not. I stay away ! I think people are differently with their sensitivity level ... ...

Don't beat yourself up about it. The company may have changed suppliers or it may be put together in a different plant than previously. I hope they didn't CC you but if you have had some mystery glutenings at least you may have discovered the cause.

Good advice from Ennis. My doctor (allergist MD) had me eliminate gluten, and a whole lot of other things, and said to continue with my elimination diet until symptoms improved. When you add gluten back in try to do it in a form that is a 'pure' as possible. I used Cream of Wheat and Triscuits an...

So almost a YEAR ago I started purchasing a trail mix that had a good price and I liked. I checked ingredients back then and it had nothing gluten and no warning. I noticed the label changed a while back but didn't think twice about double checking ingredients. Today I get the idea to look at it,...
