2 medium-large beets, roasted and peeled
2 fennel bulbs, trimmed, quartered and sliced thin
1 large naval orange, peeled and sliced in rounds
1 large bunch of leafy greens of choice (arugula or butter lettuce work well)
3 tablespoons fresh mint
¼ cup lime juice
2 teaspoons maple syrup
1 tablespoon cilantro, chopped
¼ teaspoon cumin (or to taste)
sea salt and pepper to taste
¼ cup olive oil
Add the leafy greens to a large bowl. Next, combine the beet, fennel, orange, walnuts, and mint and add to the leafy greens. In a separate bowl, whisk the lime juice, maple syrup, cumin, cilantro, salt, and pepper. Slowly drizzle in the olive oil and whisk again. Toss the salad with the dressing and serve immediately.
