I could eat this salad on.repeat. Which is hilarious considering I only found this gem of a vegetable like 2 years ago- whaaat! You 100% do not neee a detox with everything these little gems provide. Beets give the beautiful color and provide a boost of fiber, nitrous oxide & antioxidants. It’s tossed in a citrusy orange 🍊 vinegrette so it’s perfect for a summer side. If your feeling frisky- add some grilled chicken and avocado 🥑 & call it a day. Don’t let the prep of beets intimidate you- you can buy em steamed and peeled at Trader Joe’s, Vons & Albertsons.
2 Cups Cooked Quinoa
5-6 Beets, Steamed & Peeled
1/4 C Feta Cheese, Crumbled
1 Apple, Diced (any variety, I used pink lady)
1 Bunch Curly Kale, minced
1 Tsp Maple Syrup
1 TB Orange Juice
1 Tsp Apple Cider Vinegar
1. Combine quinoa, beets, feta, kale & apple in bowl, stir to combine
2. To prepare dressing combine orange juice, syrup and vinegar- pour over quinoa mixture and combine.
3. Let salad chill in fridge to let flavors combine and serve!
