Dont throw those leafy beet tops away! Beet greens make buying fresh beets a two-in-one bargain because the leaves look, taste, and can be prepared like Swiss chard. Other greens to try in this recipe: Swiss chard, spinach, or flat-leafed kale.
1. To make Horseradish-Tangerine Dressing: Whisk together olive oil, tangerine juice, cider vinegar, and horseradish in small bowl.

Horseradish-Tangerine Dressing in medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper, if desired.
