Beet Cilantro Salad with Clementine Vinaigrette

We love beets and are always trying to figure out new ways to eat them.  While reading some South American recipes I found a beet with orange salad that sounded pretty tasty so I ran with that recipe and made some modifications.  I opted for clementines because we had them on hand and it came out well.  It's really refreshing and will be great as we get into the warmer months.

3 cooked beets sliced
3 clementines juiced (with pulp)
2 tbs salted pepitas
1/2 cup fresh cilantro chopped
1 small shallot minced
1 tbs red wine vinegar
2 tbs white vinegar
1/4 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp ground lemon pepper
pinch sea salt
1/2 tsp maple syrup

Mix all above ingredients together.  Chill for at least one hour.  Enjoy!
