Spinach, Beet and Quinoa Salad- It's What's for Lunch

We have been having some fun meals for lunches the last couple weeks Lentil Stew, Lentil Salad and now this one!  We are starting to move out of winter vegetables and moving toward spring veggies. Bring on the beets, spinach, onions, radishes and so on. I can't wait to get these vegetables going in my garden, I bought the seeds today!
