In The Kitchen...Quinoa Salad

Our local coffee shop - Satsuma has THE BEST Quinoa Salad! Although at $8.50 a pop, my addiction to the salad became a quest to make it myself. (If you're not familiar with Quinoa click HERE)

It's VERY healthy and very simple to make! It is extremely filling and would even be a great option for a picnic. OK, enough praising - this photo below lists everything I threw in it.

I love making things like this because you could just throw in whatever you have on hand. As a side I made Kale Chips thanks to my blogger friend Amy's recipe!

It's SO good and lasts for days!! Great for these hot summer months!

Jinx! So funny you just posted this...I made Quinoa for the first time last night and topped it with some scallops and a citrus sauce. I *LOOOOVE* white rice, but realized I have to find some healthier alternatives. I will have to give your salad a try...what kind of vinaigrette did you use?
