Beets and orange salad Nopalito

“Ensalada de betabeles y naranja”. Salad of beets, orange, pickled onion, queso fresco, chile de arbol, chile guajillo and lime. $6
Nopalito, San Francisco

I have never seen this particular combination of ingredients.  It’s SO good!  I think the queso fresco and chile powders totally make the dish.  The plate is bright and vibrant and the beets are oranges taste amazing.  Perhaps the lime wedge is over kill though, there’s already enough acid fromt he oranges and pickled onions.
