Recipe Tips:

It's a good idea to make the salad soon after the roasted vegetables are cooked, so they don't dry out and lose their color. If they're still a little warm, that's ok.

The beets will tint the quinoa a little pink, which I think is pretty. If you don't want pink quinoa, leave the beets out of your roasted veggies.
