Hello Lovelies, today’s recipe, for beetroot salad with oranges and ricotta I once again dedicate to one of my favorite winter fruits, before these are no longer available: the blood oranges. You might already know how much I love them since I made several recipes with them. Have you tried my orange cake yet? Whether in soups, cakes, salads or on my porridge, I can’t get enough of these beautiful oranges. I call them the surprise egg for foodies :-), you never know how they look inside. Each time you cut one, you either get surprised with a great color, or disappointed when it’s “just” orange (which unfortunately happens too).
I really like the blood oranges in a salad, especially in a salad in combination with beetroot from the oven, that is a delicious harmony. The earthy taste of the beetroot and the tartness of the oranges, that harmonizes really great. The beetroots are baked in a marinade with orange juice and zest, which gives them a special flavor. With the creamy vegan ricotta from New Roots, juicy fine lettuce leaves, caramelized hazelnuts and an subtle dressing – a heavenly salad with a twist.
And here’s the recipe for the beetroot salad with oranges and ricotta:
I love the roasted beetroot from the oven, they just taste delicious and give each dish a special flavor. I was lucky and got a very nice blood orange for this salad. It had a really great color gradient and makes the salad, of course, an eye-catcher.
Do you like fruits in your salads, I think that’s really delicious. Especially now, where there are still blood oranges available in the stores, you should definitely try it once. But even with “normal” oranges, the salad still tastes very good, so do not worry, in case you should not get blood oranges anymore.
