7-Layer Beet Salad

  • Author: Lindsay
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 6 servings 1x


This 7-Layer Beet Salad is a stunner! Studded with cooked beets, supremed oranges, chopped pistachios, creamy truffle ricotta, and a bit of fresh mint. So fresh, so good!  


Units Scale
  • 23 cups chopped kale
  • 1/4 cup of balsamic store-bought dressing, simple green salad dressing, or just olive oil and lemon
  • 23 oranges, cut into rounds
  • 8 small cooked beets (2 packages if you’re buying Love Beets)
  • 1 minced shallot
  • 1/2 cup truffle ricotta or ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 cup pistachios, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh mint OR other chopped herbs you like (basil, chives, or thyme would be good)


  1. Massage kale with a bit of the dressing to soften it. Trust me – it will taste way better.
  2. Cut the beets, oranges, and shallots.
  3. Spread a little bit of your creamy element onto the serving platter. If this is a salad for one, I would use about 3 tablespoons. If it’s a salad for 4-6, I would use more like 1/2 cup.
  4. Layer the rest of the 6 ingredients: massaged kale, beets, oranges, shallots, pistachios, and herbs. Finish with olive oil, salt, and pepper if you want. I love this salad with a hunk of good focaccia.


I like the simple green salad dressing for this – I think it works perfectly on the kale. The Maple Balsamic dressing from Trader Joe’s is a bit more on the creamy side and also works great.
