Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place golden beets in a medium saucepan, and baby beets in a small saucepan; add water to cover beets by 2 inches. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low; simmer until beets are tender, 40 to 45 minutes for golden beets and 15 to 20 minutes for baby beets. Drain beets, and let stand until cool enough to handle.

  • Peel beets. Cut the golden beets crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick slices, and cut baby beets in half lengthwise. Arrange beets on a serving platter.

  • Whisk together the orange juice, lemon juice, and oil in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper, and stir in the mint. Drizzle beets with the citrus-mint dressing, and garnish with mint sprigs.
