Pomegranate, Beet Salad with Blood Orange and Mint (Gluten-Free)

Recently, I've learned to love the lowly beet. The beet is a rich, earthy wonder. Served chilled in a salad, beets make the perfect summertime delight. This intense beet salad is accented with blood oranges, mint and feta cheese, makes a truly bold statement. Served over mixed greens, it is sure to delight your guests.
