    For the Salad
    1. Combine 1 cup of the vinegar and the water in a non-reactive medium-size pot. Bring to a boil.
    2. Cut the tops off the beets and reserve them. Quarter the beets and drop into the boiling liquid. Simmer until tender in the center but not mushy, about 15 minutes. Drain; set aside to drip dry.
    3. Cut the beet greens from one of the bunches crosswise into thin shreds, stopping at the stems. (Reserve the remaining greens for another dish.) Wash the beet greens in plenty of water and dry in a salad spinner or on paper towels. Toss the dried greens with the remaining 2 tablespoons vinegar, 1/4 teaspoon of the salt, and 1/4 teaspoon of the pepper.
    4. Peel the cooked beets; cut into thin slices grate the daikon through the large holes of a hand grater or with a food processor.
    5. To assemble, spread the beet greens on a platter. Arrange the sliced beets over the greens; season with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Mound the shredded daikon in the center. Pour the Orange Vinaigrette over the salad. Sprinkle on the orange zest and cilantro. Serve right away, or refrigerate for up to several hours.
    For the Orange Vinaigrette (Makes about 3/4 cup)
    Takes about 5 minutes
    1. Combine all of the ingredients in a small bowl and whisk together. Serve right away, or cover, refrigerate, and use within 3 days.
