Ingredients
  Beets 2 Bunch (200 gm) (if the beets are very small, leave them whole; if they are large, quarter them)
  Olive oil 2 Tablespoon
  Orange juice 3 Tablespoon
  Balsamic vinegar 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Dijon mustard 1 Teaspoon
  Fresh mint 2 Teaspoon, finely chopped
  Salt To Taste
  Pepper To Taste
Directions

1. Preheat oven to 400° F.
2. Lightly rub the beets with about 1 tablespoon of the olive oil. Place them in the oven on a roasting pan and cook for about 1 hour, or until they can be pierced with a fork.
3. Combine the orange juice, vinegar, remaining olive oil, and mustard, and place in a small pan and bring to a boil.
4. Remove the beets from the oven and peel them when they are cool enough to handle. Place them in a bowl.
5. Pour the orange juice mixture over the beets. Add salt and pepper to taste and the fresh mint, if desired.
