I don't know about you but I always make way too much quinoa and end up with tons of leftovers. This salad is the perfect way to use it all up. It has all the right elements. It's colorful, crunchy and filling. More importantly you can customize it any way you like by adding in any vegetables or leftovers you want. Best of all it can be ready in just minutes.
Cook Time: 20 Minutes
