Layered Quinoa Salad with Beet Vinaigrette
June 1, 2012
Over here we love quinoa ~ in sweet & savory dishes. For breakfast, lunch, dinner and everything in between! Often I bake with it too. Quinoa is a versatile grain like seed (many folks often mistake this for a grain, it is not.) It’s delicate flavor pairs well with so many things.
In my last recipe post I shared our favorite Citrus Coconut Roasted Beets.
In this layered salad I make great use those roasted beets!
Check out that bright pink beet vinaigrette…
Layered salads are so pretty and simple to make.
Serving food in jars is a sure way to get some great attention. Something about mason jars is just so cute!
I mixed half of the quinoa with my homemade beet vinaigrette and I left the other half plain. I like the way the layers look with the two colors.
You can do what you like…
