Quick Colourful Quinoa Green Salad

Goodness I love quinoa. See here and here, oh and here. You can say that I’m a little coo coo for quinoa. 😉

It’s just so deliciously easy and simple enough to make into a great healthy, hearty dish!

For lunch the other day, I thought I’d turn it up a notch! I adore spices in my food and decided to make it flavourful (Moroccan style) and top it off with LOTS of greens, of course! It was a perfect lunch to enjoy outside and kept me full and satisfied until my next meal. Plus, look how beautiful and vibrant the colours are of delicious whole foods?  This recipe is really easy, check it out for yourself…
