Notes
* This recipe calls for cooked quinoa and roasted beets. To keep total prep time to a minimum look for packaged fresh roasted beets (generally in the packaged lettuce section) and cooked quinoa (generally in the frozen food section) of your grocers. ( I've found both at my local Trader Joes, Safeway, Kroger stores and even at Target ! ( my local Target has a huge food section)
