This easy, healthy quinoa salad is one of our favorite summer treats. It is so versatile, you can change up the ingredients to your liking. This simple recipe has our favorite mix-ins, but you could add your favorite veggies or even some feta cheese or diced salami.
This is so easy! You just make some quinoa then mix everything in.
This easy salad is perfect for busy summer days. If you follow me on instagram or facebook you may have seen that we are in the process of packing for a move. Moving with four kids is never easy, but we are still looking for a house, I am taking a summer grad class, and my husband has been gone a lot for conferences. My mom came and helped for a week so we got a lot accomplished. Thank you, mom! So during this crazy busy summer, dinner is going to be easy!
