Mediterranean Quinoa Salad

Tammy T


I made this salad for my granddaughters birthday party and everyone loved it! I doubled the recipe to serve 20 guests and it was gone in a flash. Some had never tried quinoa before said they loved it. Quinoa is very good for you and is one of the most protein-rich foods we can eat. It contains almost twice as much fiber as most other grains and its goodness also includes, Iron, magnesium, B2, and lysine. Not to mention all the other benefits from the veggies in this salad. I found this on and included their picture. I tweaked it some as some of the Kraft items are hard to find.
