Beet Quinoa Salad
I like beet salads. I actually have quite a collection of beet salad recipes that I cycle through.
With a delicious and interesting combination of flavors I think that this particular beet quinoa salad is one of my favorites.
I don't use strict proportions with this salad - so that the ingredients ratios can be more or less individualized according to your personal taste preferences.
Organic mix of lettuce greens chopped fine
Organic beet, cooked and cubed into 1/4-inch dice
Organic carrots, cubed into 1/4-inch dice
Organic spring onions or chives, thinly sliced
Handful of cooked quinoa
Handful of crispy walnuts
Handful of dried organic cherries
Sprinkling of blue cheese
Olive Oil Dressing
Combine lettuce, beet, carrots, scallion or chives, quinoa, walnuts and cherries and stir together well. Serve on plate or plates with a sprinkling of blue cheese and olive oil dressing of your choice.
My fav dressing is super simple. I combine a good quality olive oil with freshly squeezed lemon juice, dijon mustard, honey, and sea salt. The honey mustard flavor compliments the beets and cherries.
