Quinoa Salad [GF; V]

A flavorful family side dish favorite!

 

One of my daughters introduced me to quinoa. I started creating different dishes with quinoa because my daughter is gluten intolerant and vegetarian. One of these dishes is Quinoa Salad. The texture, the multi-colors, and the dressing all create an extraordinary meal. Perfect for family gatherings.

Sahtein! Enjoy!
