Just starting a health kick, getting off the sauce for the next 30 days and back to the gym. This recipe just came to me, so thought I'd share! It is great with salmon, boiled eggs, and avocado.

I was looking for a recipe with edamame when I found this one. I made this salad and served it with scoop chips like a chunky salsa idea. I skipped the starch and went all veggies with some pickled beets and I used an Asian ginger dressing. Everyone loved it. This is my first quinoa salad and it the recipe was a great outline with lots of possibilities. Thank you! Read More

Oops. Hit the done button by accident. As for the dressing, my husband can't digest the onion and garlic so I blended them into the dressing ingredients and then strained it. I also subbed in feta cheese for goat as that was what was on hand. Read More
