Mixed with lime juice, cilantro, onions and tomatoes, this quinoa salad is a light and refreshing alternative to any grain dish.
I remember the first time I tried quinoa salad, as I was teaching a class one of my participants brought quinoa for us to try–I felt in love! How can something so healthy have such a delicious taste? It was my first time eating quinoa, which by the way it has become a staple ingredient in my household.
This ancient grain is high in protein, has a nutty flavor and it is a great substitute for rice or any other grain. The quinoa grain is well-known in South America, however today it has become increasingly popular in many other countries.
Quinoa has a mild flavor– Mix it with your favorite ingredients and the cooked quinoa will absorb all the yumminess.
Today’s recipe has some of my favorite flavors: cilantro and onion.
