Beet & Quinoa Salad

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.
