Every time I test out a new flavor combination with Quinoa, it becomes my new favorite. This recipe is the latest approach and it’s really quite wonderful as an addition to a green, leafy salad. This Quinoa salad is a healthy meal option that comes together quickly and is a clean and delicious dinner idea. Give it a try the next time you want to eat light.
