Roasted Beet Salad with Orange Tahini Dressing is a wonderful side that will go well with any type of meat or fish, or tossed over some arugula or baby spinach, it’s a satisfying meal in itself.



4 large or 5 medium sized beets (red, golden or both)

2 tbsp olive oil

2 tbsp crumbled feta cheese

2 tbsp chopped shelled pistachios

A couple leaves of fresh mint, chopped

1 tbsp tahini

1 ½ tbsp freshly squeezed orange juice

2 tbsp olive oil

½ tsp salt


  1. Heat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Peel the beets and cut off ends. Cut beets in half and then into wedges. The wedges should be approximately the size of orange segments. If you are using red beets, you may want to use gloves to prevent your hands from staining.
  3. Place the beets on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast for 40-45 minutes until the beets are fork tender. Remove from the oven and place on cooling rack.
  4. While the beets are cooling, make dressing. Whisk together tahini, olive oil, orange juice and salt. If the dressing seems too thick, add a splash of hot water to loosen it.
  5. Arrange roasted beets on a platter or shallow bowl. Drizzle with dressing, sprinkle with feta cheese, chopped pistachios and chopped mint.
