Quinoa and Beets

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       Cooked Quinoa

1    cup       steamed beets, cubed

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

2 TBS        Macadamia Nut oil

2  TBS       Balsamic vinegar

fresh thyme to garnish

Some additions; walnuts, onions, scallions, shredded carrots.............
