Quinoa and cranberries in a delicious salad. You all know I love to eat healthily and part of my passion is it to inspire you to eat healthy too.
This is a great dish to make when you are having company over. I love to make it once a week and keep it on hand in the fridge so I know I have something healthy to eat when I am in a rush. It’s great as a side dish or to top off a salad. I like this brand of quinoa.
