We were salivating by the time this salad was finished. Not only is this quinoa salad gorgeous to look at, it smells heavenly. The dressing is easy to make and has some sass and kick. Quinoa is so versatile. You can make any flavor or theme from Southwestern to Chinese. You can add nearly any veggie to it and make it a salad or a meal. “Quinoa is gluten-free, has a low glycemic index and provides all the eight essential amino acids, creating a complete protein.” truroots.com. It’s a great item for your food storage because it’s got protein up the wazoo!
We just love this recipe from Let’s Dish. We had this dish both hot and cold. Both were fantastic. Quinoa is easy to prepare and nearly impossible to ruin. It cooks up in 7-8 minutes and is as good cold as it is hot. You can whip up a big batch on Monday and eat it all week. This recipe uses chicken broth instead of water, but if you’re a vegetarian, vegetable broth is a great substitution. You won’t be disappointed. This salad is DELISH.
