Light Quinoa Salad

By  |  0 Comments

I have been on a quinoa kick for a while now, I have tested it in all sorts of dishes.  Quinoa is truly a great food to eat.  It is a complete protein.  This means that it has all essential amino acids making this perfect for vegetarians, vegans or people like me who don’t necessarily love meat.Quinoa salad recipe healthy
