Tropical Quinoa Salad Recipe

Quinoa.  Do you eat it?  I am a newbie I will confess.  My mom has been telling me for months to try it…in fact when she was here in April she actually bought some for me so I would try it.  I left it sit in the pantry until earlier this week.  Now, I will say I am a fan!  For some reason I am liking it cold – I have yet to try it hot!  I have been experimenting with delicious fruits and vegetables to add to it for a salad.

This is my Tropical version and I will say I really like it!  I love having something sweet in there – and I love the crunchiness from the fresh veggies.

So, without any further adieu, here is my recipe for a Tropical Quinoa Salad:
