  • 2 large or 3 medium beets rinsed, trimmed, and cooked or microwaved until just tender
  • 1/2 medium cucumber peeled, and sliced
  • 2 small sweet seedless oranges such as small clementines, sectioned
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh dill
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh chives or scallion
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons minced fresh mint optional
  • Juice of 1/2 to 1 lemon about 2 to 4 tablespoons
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup or agave nectar or to taste
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste


  • The easiest way to cook beets is to microwave them in a covered container with about 1/4 inch of water at the bottom. Start with 2 minutes per medium beet or 3 minutes per large beet, and add a minute per beet until they can be pierced through with a little resistance. Let stand until cool enough to handle.
  • Peel the cooked beets, then cut into 1/2-inch dice. Combine them in a mixing bowl with the remaining ingredients. Serve at once or cover and chill before serving.

    Great combination of flavors. Enjoyed by two people who claimed they did not like beets. I omitted the dill and the sweetener. I used tangerines as that is what I had on hand. I loved the three-color combination. The beets looked like little jewels. The mint is essential.
