Quinoa is the “it” ingredient for so many
dishes nowadays. Once cooked the light texture it produces makes for a great
alternative to mainstays like white rice or couscous. It is whole grain but has
an airy taste that works great for salads, especially when mixed with something
as deep in nutrients as beets. That purple veggie boosts people on many levels
– heart pressure, antioxidants, minerals, and many more – so including it in
your diet is a no brainer if you’re already switching to quinoa. The chicken in
this recipe gives it an added protein boost. This is best served on a nice warm
lunch to keep you going.

There are many beet and quinoa salads that
add more vegetables like cucumbers and green beans. Some make interesting
changes in the dressing as well, like creating heavier ones with syrup or
creamier ones with yogurt. Again, the options are all yours. Just keep this in
mind: quinoa will get you full rather quickly, so there may be no need to load
up. Just enjoy the simplicity of this salad.
