I love Quinoa, and probably don't use it enough. I harvested some beets this week, and decided to make some salad. I cooked one cup of Quinoa, and let it cool. I boiled the beets for about an hour, until tender, then cut them into 1/2" cubes. I then mixed everything together, and served on a steamed bed of Swiss Chard.

1 cup steamed beets, cubed
1/2 cup Gorgonzola, or other blue cheese broken up
