Good-quality extra-virgin olive, pumpkin seed, or walnut oil (for drizzling)

GUIDE / INSTRUCTIONS
Cook Beetroot (oven, steam or microwave) until just tender when pierced with a knife. Allow to cool. Meanwhile, using a sharp knife, cut all peel and white pith from all oranges; discard.
Working over a medium bowl, cut between membranes of 2 blood oranges to release segments into bowl; squeeze juice from membranes into bowl and discard membranes. Slice remaining blood orange and oranges crosswise into thin rounds. Place sliced oranges in bowl with the segments. Add lemon juice and lime juice.
Peel your cooled beetroot. Slice 2 beets crosswise into thin rounds. Cut remaining 2 beets into wedges. Strain citrus juices; reserve. Layer beets and oranges on plates, dividing evenly.
Arrange fennel and onion over beets. Spoon reserved citrus juices over, then drizzle salad generously with oil. Season to taste with coarse sea salt and pepper. Let salad stand for 5 minutes to allow flavours to meld. Garnish with fresh coriander leaves.
