Mediterranean Quinoa Salad

This recipe for Mediterranean Quinoa Salad will quickly become a staple in your kitchen. It is perfect to enjoy on its own, or as a side!

While many “light and fresh” salads leave you hungry in an hour, this one is different, all thanks to quinoa. Quinoa is packed with protein and fiber, both of which will keep you feeling satisfied.
