Roasted beets pair beautifully with citrus, feta and walnuts in this refreshing winter salad. The only tricky part is peeling the beets because they're messy and turn everything pink, so be sure to wear an apron and use a stain-proof cutting board. You can also wear disposable gloves to protect your hands.

Note: When you toss the citrus segments with the beets, they'll turn a pinkish hue. I think it looks pretty but if you'd rather the beets not bleed into the fruit, you can arrange all of the elements of the salad individually.
