Ingredients

  • cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup white wine vinegar
  • ½ tsp coarse sea salt
  • 1 tbsp freshly grated ginger
  • 1 orange segmented
  • 2 tbsp chopped chives
  • ½ tsp black pepper

Instructions

  • Cool the beets. Slip off the skins.
  • Cut into ¼ inch cubes and place into a large bowl.
  • Combine beets with sugar, white wine vinegar, olive oil, sea salt, freshly grated ginger, zest of one good sized orange, the orange segments, chives and wild blueberries.
  • Toss delicately and set for at least an hour.
  • Top with grated orange peel and sea salt.
