QUINOA WITH GREENS, BEETS, WALNUTS AND FETA - A BEAUTIFUL, HEALTHY, DELICIOUS DINNER

Made with kale, toasted walnuts and a balsamic dressing - this salad is a power house salad.  Be prepared to love it, even if you don't love brussels sprouts or kale.  I think you'll agree after you make this salad that this is the best healthy salad ever!  It's full of healthy ingredients - beets, brussels sprouts, quinoa, kale, shallots and feta! It would be great as a side to simply grilled salmon or chicken, or on its own as a light vegetarian dinner.

Roast the beets with a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkle of Pink Himalayan Sea Salt.
