  • Prepare dressing: In a small airtight container, combine orange juice, vinegar and oil. Cover and shake well. Drizzle dressing over salad.

Tips

Tip: If you prefer, roast your own beets. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Scrub 3 fresh baby beets; trim off stem and root ends. Halve beets; place in a 1-quart casserole. Lightly coat beets with nonstick cooking spray. Roast, covered, for 35 minutes. Roast, uncovered, about 10 minutes more or until beets are tender. Cool to room temperature.

Storage: To tote, place salad in an airtight container; cover. Transport salad and dressing in an insulated lunch box with ice packs, but place lunch box in a refrigerator within 1 hour. Hold in the refrigerator for up to 6 hours. To serve, shake dressing and drizzle over salad.
