Citrus Beet Salad with Champagne Vinaigrette Dressing on a white platter

Citrus Beet Salad with Champagne Vinaigrette Dressing

  • Author: Julie @ RDelicious Kitchen
  • Yield: 4 1x


  • 3 beets, greens and stems removed
  • 1 grapefruit, cut into segments
  • 1 orange, cut into segments, reserving 1 tablespoon of juice and the zest
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon champagne vinegar
  • 1/2 tablespoon honey
  • pinch of salt and pepper
  • 2 cups arugula
  • 1/4 cup toasted walnuts


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Scrub beets clean under cold water. Wrap each beet in tin foil. Place on a baking sheet; bake until beets are slightly soft to the touch, 45 minutes to 1 hour depending on their size. Cool beets in packets, then rub off skins (use a paring knife for tough spots). Quarter each beet.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, champagne vinegar, honey, orange juice, salt, and pepper.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the beets and arugula. Drizzle half the vinaigrette over the beet arugula mixture and toss to combine.
  4. Top with grapefruit segments, orange segments, and walnuts. Drizzle the remaining vinaigrette on top. Garnish with orange zest.


Time-saving tip: Use Love Beets (See Supermarket RD’s Picks), which are already cooked and steamed.
