Looks pretty good doesn’t it?

I have a weird obsession with quinoa – I love it!! I use it in a lot of recipes and wanted to share something I made for dinner last week.

In fact, my whole little family loved it and I had to make another batch.

Anyway, let me know what you think about this recipe. I posted some photos of the process below.

Enjoy! 🙂

First, I chopped up all the veggies and put them together in the bowl.

    I do the exact same salad and I sometimes add half a beetroot, or some mushrooms.
    The only thing I do different in the dressing is instead of the vinegar I put loads of lemon and either parsley or mint

    Definitely looks yummy, looking forward to making it and tasting it myself. Looks like a taste sensation.
