Citrus Beet Salad

This is an incredible recipe. We are members at one of the most prestigious Art Museums in the country, The Kimball. We're fortunate to live in the Dallas Ft. Worth metroplex and be able to visit it often.
We went to the opening of Faces of Impressionism, Portraits from the Musee D 'Orsay in Paris, France. It's also one of our favorite Museums. It's our favorite museum in Paris.
We had lunch in the museum cafe yesterday and fell in love with this simple beet salad. When I looked a the Kimball Cookbook in the museum gift shop, I saw the recipe. When I was paying for the book, I told the sales associate that I was paying $30 for a salad recipe. I discovered that there are hundreds of amazing recipes in the book. I decided to post some of them, starting with the Citrus Beet Salad.

Salad:
1  - 16 oz. jar of Sliced Pickled Beets, drained
1 C thinly sliced Carrots
1/4 C thinly sliced Red Onions
1/2 C Dried Cranberries
1 C Orange sections or 1 can Mandarin Oranges, drained.
2 TBS chopped fresh Parsley

Dressing:
3 TBS Red Wine Vinegar
3 TBS Orange Marmalade
1/4 tsp Allspice
1/4 tsp Coriander
1/4 tsp Cinnamon
1/4 tsp dried Ginger
1/2 tsp Vanilla
1/2 tsp Salt
1/8 tsp freshly ground Black Pepper
1 TBS Vegetable Oil

In a large mixing bowl:
Beets
Carrots
Onions
Cranberries
Orange Segments
Parsley
Stir to combine.
Set aside.

In a medium mixing bowl:
Vinegar
Marmalade
Allspice
Coriander
Cinnamon
Ginger
Vanilla
Salt
Black Pepper

Whisk well.

Pour dressing over the salad and toss well.
Refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight.

Enjoy!
Peace in the Kitchen!
