Mediterranean Quinoa Salad

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?!
