  2. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Drizzle sliced beets with olive oil, allspice, salt and pepper. Roast for 25-30 minutes, flipping half way through. Check occasionally to make sure they do not burn. Once beets are cooked, remove from oven and sprinkle with fresh orange juice. Set Side.

Recipe Notes

* add more blueberries if want a thicker dressing. The dressing will be chunky from the skins of the blueberries. If you prefer no skins, you can run the dressing through a sieve. *The measurements of salad ingredients are meant only to be used as a guide. You can add as much or as little of the ingredients as you wish. Salads are easily customizable, so you can remove and add any ingredients your prefer (have fun with it!).
