Summer is not over! Salads on the deck are blissful…and this beet and spinach salad is a sure summer treat.

Ingredients

  • 3-4 beets
  • 1 bag of spinach
  • 1 1/3 cup of orange juice (fresh squeeze if you like – I just didn’t have my juicer yet)
  • 1/4 cup of extra virgin olive oil (I use omega oil)
  • 1.5 tablespoons of fennel seeds
  • salt and pepper

Peel the beets and then cut them up into small squares. Cook covered at 375 for 1.5-2 hours or until cooked (not mushy, just cooked).

In a large pan, heat up the olive oil for about 2 minutes on medium, then add fennel seeds. After about 4 minutes, add the orange juice. Once the dressing has simmered for about 5 minutes, add the cooked beets and ensure they are all covered with the dressing. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Let the beets cool a bit – not too much. Lay out the spinach and place warm beets and dressing over it. Serve it right away – you don’t want the spinach to wilt and get soft.
