1 Cut the beets into 1/4-inch slices. Alternate the beet and orange slices on a platter.
2 Whisk the oil and lemon juice with salt and pepper to taste. Pour the dressing over the beets and oranges. Scatter the mint on top. Serve immediately.
*ROASTING BEETS: Place a rack in the center of the oven. Preheat the oven to 450°F. Scrub the beets and wrap them in a large sheet of aluminum foil, sealing tightly. Place the package on a baking sheet. Bake for 45 to 75 minutes, depending on size, or until the beets feel tender when pierced through the foil with a sharp knife. Let the beets cool in the foil. Peel and chop the beets.
