Green Quinoa Salad

We love salads in our house and this new one has been a favourite the last few weeks with my hubby and the twins.

This is the perfect salad for lunches, to take a big batch to a BBQ or to have for dinner with some dukkah crusted baked chicken or salmon.

See my dukkah recipe here to use for the crust, its deelish! https://carrotsticksandcravings.com/dukkah/

    Hi, I tried the Green Quinoa Salad recipe last night and LOVED it. I’m on a quest to change the way my family eats and introduce a wider range to our weekly meals. My husband said it was the best salad we have had to date 🙂
    Thank you so much
