Preheat oven to 425 °F (220 °C).

Place beets wedges on baking sheet. Toss with oil and salt. Roast, stirring once for 15 min or until tender. Cool.
Meanwhile, rinse quinoa. Bring 1 cup (250 mL) of salted water to a boil; stir in quinoa. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 17 to 20 min or until tender. Fluff with a fork; let cool.

Place quinoa, green onions, cranberries, apricots and feta in a bowl. Stir to mix.

Dressing:
In a food processor, pulse herbs with garlic until finely chopped. Pulse in avocado, then cream, vinegar, salt, pepper and cayenne.

Line four plates with 1 or 2 lettuce leaves. Top each with beets followed by quinoa mixture. Drizzle each salad with dressing to taste.

Tips

To store the remaining dressing, transfer to bowl. Place plastic wrap directly on surface. Refrigerate for up to 2 days. It may get a bit brown on top but it will still be delicious.

Dried cherries would be a great substitute for the cranberries.
