Beet Salad with Oranges, Olives & Chives


6 medium beets
3 oranges
1/2 C pitted kalamata olives
2 tbsp. olive oil
2 tbsp. rice vinegar
2 tbsp. grated fresh ginger
2 tbsp. chopped fresh chives
Salt to taste
Generous pinch of cayenne

Peel and coarsely grate beets by hand or food processor. Place in a medium bowl. Peel & seed two of the oranges, separate into segments and cut into bite-size pieces. Toss with grated beets & olives. In a small bowl, combine olive oil, vinegar, ginger, chives and juice of 3rd orange. Season with salt & cayenne, and stir into beet mixture. Allow to stand at room temp. at least 15 min., tossing occasionally. Salad gets better when marinated a few hours.
