20 Aug Quinoa Salad
15-minute Quinoa Salad ; Quinoa salad was one of my only exposure to Quinoa, which is why perfecting a Quinoa Salad was very important to me.
If you ask me, Quinoa Salad is the perfect recipe to bring to picnic and BBQ’s, and the fact that it is a cold dish makes throwing it together super easy in just 15-minutes.
And it actually tastes better the longer it sits in the refrigerator. It’s pretty much the perfect food, in my opinion!
Perfect as a side, main dish and an appetizer!
