Pink Clementine Vinaigrette

A citrus beet dressing..

We put homemade pickled beets in our Bloody Marys, and the leftovers are great in salads. Using the pickled liquid in a dressing creates a bright pink vinaigrette.

Also, all those holiday clementines.. I used them as a base before they went bad and then scooped out the flesh for the salad.

Bright and tart and wonderfully creepy pink.
