Quinoa salads are the perfect dish. I’m serious. These salads are high in protein, contain vegetables which mean nutrients and fiber, they’re delicious, and they’re incredibly easy to make! I highly recommend trying this easy recipe especially if your guests have dietary preferences. This particular salad is gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free, and vegan!
