One of the cool things about this salad is that Quinoa is actually a complete protein. This tasty grain weighs in with about 8 g of protein and 5 g of fiber per serving. And it’s one of the only non-animal sources of food that is a complete protein.
This salad is pretty easy if you don’t mind a bunch of chopping and a great side to have throughout the week 🙂 I LOVE the flavor! Who says healthy has to be bland?!
