Earthy beets and tangy citrus pair perfectly with rich walnuts and Octonuts California Walnut Oil in this colorful salad! 🍊 Feel free to use whatever citrus fruit is in season — blood oranges would be beautiful, or even pomelo!

1 Cara Cara orange, peeled and sliced
1 small ruby red grapefruit, peeled and sliced
