Recipe

Quinoa salads are my jam. I love the hearty, protein packed, satisfying edge quinoa brings to just about any salad. It's also a great option when entertaining vegetarian friends. This simple salad combines nutty quinoa with lots of veggies and a Thai dressing made with peanut butter. Just leave out the fish sauce for vegetarians and vegans.
