A simple, delicious, quick and easy ‘Quinoa Salad’. I whipped this up the other night with things we had left it the cupboard and got peppered with DM’s for the recipe so here it is! We had ours with some fresh caught mahi grilled with salt and pepper and it was. Who’s gonna have a crack at this one?
