Ingredients

Uncooked celery

1 rib(s), medium, chopped

White wine vinegar

2 tsp

Dry mustard

¼ tsp

Table salt

¼ tsp

Black pepper

¼ tsp, freshly ground

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Place beets on a large piece of aluminum foil; drizzle with oil. Fold foil to form a tightly sealed packet. Place packet on a baking sheet and roast until beets are tender when pierced with a fork, about 1 hour.
  3. Cool beets for 10 minutes, open packet (be careful of escaping steam), slip off beets' skins with a paring knife and cut into 1/2-inch cubes. Place beets in a serving bowl. Add tangerine, onion and celery; toss gently.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together vinegar, mustard, salt and pepper; pour over beets and toss to mix and coat. Serve immediately. Yields about 1/2 cup per serving.

Notes

Substitute a grapefruit for the tangerine, if you prefer.
