Directions

1. Make the vinaigrette: Squeeze orange and lime to collect the juice. Filter to discard seeds and pulp. Boil in a small sauce pan to reduce, until you obtain about 2 tablespoons of concentrated juice. Allow to cool in a bowl, then mix with honey and oils. Season with salt and set aside.

2. Wash and peel beets. Using a sharp knife or a box grater, cut into matchsticks. Divide into plates and sprinkle with poppy seeds and basil leaves. Drizzle with the vinaigrette and serve.
