Directions

1. Peel the beets with a vegetable peeler, and grate in a food processor fitted with the shredding blade. [I use a hand grater]

2. Combine the orange juice, lemon juice and olive oil. Toss with the beets and herbs. Season to taste with salt. Line a salad bowl or platter with romaine lettuce leaves, top with the grated beets and serve.

Advance preparation: The grated beets can be dressed and kept in the refrigerator, covered well, for a couple of days. They become more tender but donít lose their texture, and the mixture becomes even sweeter as the beet juices mingle with the citrus. Toss again before serving.
