While it's certainly been done -

- I find that those two flavors are both independently strong and bold, and I personally prefer a contrast of bold/mild. Beets and blue cheese are lovely together, and if I had to pick a cheese to go with orange, I'd pick goat. But it's really up to you; if your taste leans more acidic, then it could be worth a shot. Let us know how it goes :). Although I will say, if you're planning on making it for a dinner you're hosting, it may not be the best time to experiment (see Merrill's story here: https://food52.com/blog/20896-how-we-holiday-we-cook-1)
