Ingredients

  • 4 beets with the greens attached
  • 3 cloves of garlic minced
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1/2 red onion diced
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup of cooked quinoa
  • 2 tbsp fresh chopped dill
  • 1.5 ounces feta cheese crumbled
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Pre-heat oven to 375.
  • Peel beets and cut them into small bite-sized pieces. Toss beets with one teaspoon of olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper.
  • Place beets on a rimmed baking sheet and pop in the oven for thirty minutes or until the beets are fork tender.
  • While the beets are cooking, heat remaining olive oil in a nonstick saut pan over a medium high heat. Reserve 2 tbsp of onion and set aside. Toss the remainder of the onion into the oil and cook for about five minutes or until the onions are tender.
  • Stir in beet greens and apple cider vinegar. Allow to cook until the greens are just wilted this will only take a minute or so.
  • Allow everything to cool a bit before assembling the salad.
  • In a large bowl combine the two tablespoons of raw onion that you reserved earlier with dill, beet greens, roasted beets, and quinoa. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Gently toss in the feta cheese and serve. Enjoy!
