Beet Salad With Grapefruit, Feta and Spiced Pepitas

Chef Ryan’s beet salad is simple but so perfectly balanced. With its earthy sweet beets and bright citrus notes on a bed of Bibb lettuce, we’re sure you’ll be adding this salad to your regular rotation. It’s topped with tangy feta cheese and slightly-sweet pistachios for a dazzling flavor combination.

It’s definitely a guest favorite at Citrine Cafe in Oak Park, Ill., home to architect Frank Lloyd Wright’s long-time studio and the childhood home of Ernest Hemingway and Betty White. Those celebs might give the lovely Midwestern suburb claims to fame, but this gem of a salad also shines bright.

Perfect for any time of year, this salad is especially nice in the colder months when we tend to seek out heartier food.
