Greens And Beets With Orange Poppy Seed Dressing

Saturday, February 15, 2014

Hello Sparkfamily! Thank you for the raves on my poppy Seed Muffins! I see that you all really like poppy seeds so here is another of my recipes that I know you will enjoy! Take a peek at this!


6 cups mixed greens
2 Tbsps white vinegar
1/2 Tbsp honey
1 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1/3 cup sliced red onion
1 Tbsp poppy seeds
1 Tbsp canola oil
2 navel oranges
3 Tbsps orange juice
1/2 tsp grated orange rind
16 oz beets


Wash beets and wrap in foil. Place in 400 °F. oven for about 1 hour and 30 minutes or until knife slides easily into beets.
Let stand until cool enough to handle. Remove skin and slice thinly; set aside.
Spread greens onto platter and sprinkle with red onions then top with beets.
With a chef’s knife and using a sawing motion cut skin and white pith from oranges and cut between membranes to make segments.
Sprinkle over top of greens; set aside.
For the orange poppy seed dressing; in a small bowl, whisk together oil, orange rind and juice, vinegar, mustard, honey, garlic and poppy seeds. (Grating rather than crushing the garlic gives it smoother texture.)
Drizzle over salad mixture and serve. Enjoy!

What's the weather in your neck of the woods? Hugs, Rose:) emoticon
