Beet, Walnut & Orange Salad

6 fresh beets (try a mixture of golden and reds ones)
1 head of red leaf lettuce
1 cup walnuts, chopped
2 oranges

(Dressing - see the receipe for Basily Balsamic Dressing)

Remove the greens from the beets, cut of the tops and bottoms of them, and scrub them well. Cook in a pressure cooker. Depending on size this should take about 5-7 minutes on high pressure. When cooked, remove skins, cut into bite sized pieces and leave to cool.

Wash and dry lettuce and tear into medium pieces.

Take a knife and cut the skin and pith away from the oranges. Cut orange flesh into bite sized pieces. Remove any seeds. Squeeze any juice from the orange skin into a bowl.

Put the lettuce in a dish, add the beets, orange pieces, and chopped walnuts. Pour on the orange juice and season with salt and pepper. Serve with salad dressing.
