Red quinoa salad

Darci Juris


Red quinoa has a slightly different, more nutty, flavor than regular quinoa. There are so many different things you can do with this recipe.....make it a side dish, have a bowl of it on its own, add it to lettuce, or even add diced cooked chicken and make a burrito or lettuce wrap.
