Summer Quinoa Salad

As we head for warmer months this salad is one of my favourite easy nutritious and yummy meals. It can be used as a side for a BBQ, eaten in a wrap with hummus and spinach (a personal fave) or just on it’s own!

Double this recipe if you’re going to make this as a dish to take to a BBQ.
