Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice.

Instructions

Drain the rinse the can of beets. Slice each beet circle in half to make semi-circles. Toast the pecans over medium heat until they start to brown and are nice and fragrant. If using a block of blue cheese, roughly chop 5 oz to crumble it. Toss all the salad ingredients (mixed greens through blue cheese) together in a bowl. Combine all the dressing ingredients (orange juice through salt and pepper) in a small bowl, and mix well. Pour over salad right before serving.
