Steam or boil beets until fork tender, about 20 minutes. Slip off skins under cool, running water while beets are still warm. Cut off root and stem ends. Cool in refrigerator.
Whisk together vinegar, mustard, salt, pepper and oil until dressing is blended.
Cut cooled, peeled beets into 1-inch wedges, preserving their round shape. Toss with dressing.
To toast walnuts, preheat oven to 350° F. Spread nuts on a baking sheet and toast for 4 to 5 minutes. Let cool. Roughly chop toasted walnuts.
Add walnuts, green onions and red onions to dressed beats; toss to combine.
