  • 1 small red ruby grapefruit, peeled
  • 1 PC Organics Navel Oranges, peeled
  • 16 no name Sliced Beets, from the can, drained
  • 4 cups (1 L) PC Organics Baby Spinach
  • 1/4 cup (50 mL) PC Blue Menu Dressing - Lemon Poppy Seed
  • Thinly sliced red onion (optional)


1. Holding grapefruit on its side on cutting board, cut into eight slices. Repeat with orange,cutting into eight thin slices. Using 2 slices orange, 2 slices grapefruit and 4 slices of beets for each of four salad plates, arrange slices on plates in large circle, slightly overlapping them and alternating beets with citrus.

2. Gently toss spinach with 2 tbsp (25 mL) of the dressing. Mound one-quarter onto centre of each plate on top of beets and citrus. Drizzle remaining 2 tbsp (25 mL) dressing over the fruit. Serve immediately, garnished with red onion if desired.

Chef's Tip:

*Substitute PC Organics Baby Arugula for spinach, if you like.

*Scatter pomegranate seeds around rims of plates before serving, if desired.
