Orange Beets and Olives

6 beets trimmed and scrubbed 2 oranges, halved ½ cup kalamata olives, pitted 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 2 tablespoons grated fresh ginger 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives

Place the beets in a medium saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to low. Cover, and simmer for 45 minutes, or until the beets are tender. Drain the beets and run cold water to remove the skins. Cut the beets into ¼” cubes and place in a large bowl. Squeeze the juice from the oranges over the beets. Add the olives, vinegar, oil, ginger, and chives. Toss to coat well and let sit for 5 minutes. Season with salt to taste.
