Toasted Quinoa Salad
55 mins (prep 20, cooking 35)
12 ingredients
2-4 servings
Great dish- gluten free to serve as a side or beneath a grilled salmon steak or a grilled chicken breast piece. Similar to a cous cous salad. If gluten free- ensure GF tamari or soy sauce is used Serves 2 as a main with some salmon or chicken, or 4 as a side serve. Editted to add- this recipe is from with regards to the name- there is no actual toasting of the quinoa done. I think the name is just in reference to the colour of the dish perhaps
