Red Quinoa, Sweet Potato and Balsamic Roasted Beetroot Salad

Red Quinoa, Sweet Potato and Balsamic Roasted Beetroot Salad

This is a superb salad packed with so much flavour and it is really simple to prepare. Beetroot and goats cheese is a wedding meant to last!

My friend / neighbour here in Lagos is the queen of salad and she is so creative with simple ingredients. We had a wonderful dinner one weekend and she presented this unreal salad to us all nonchalantly. You know… “just something she came up with while looking at some ingredients she had in the house.” There was another salad, but more about that in the near future. All I can say is both salads shared first prize (and there were South African lamb chops on the menu, too).

She only laughs when I tell her she should start writing down her recipes and steps and write her own book on healthy living and share all her great recipes with the rest of us. She says she can’t cook, but she does not give herself enough credit.  All the meals from her kitchen has been great!  Thanks, Willemien, I will never forget your crazy salad and side dishes combinations.

If you decide to serve this as individual starters, reduce the amount of quinoa. If you are serving this as a side dish with a main meal you can keep the 2 cups quinoa. Also, if you are serving many side dishes with this, this salad will be enough for 6 – 8 people.
