Fiesta quinoa salad is becoming one of my favorite recipes. It’s so fresh and delicious, not to mention healthy! This salad is filling enough to serve for lunch, but it also makes a great side dish. It’s perfect to serve when entertaining or when you need to bring a dish to a family gathering or picnic.
This gluten-free and vegan salad is packed with so many delicious flavors and is bursting with vibrant color. Yes, it IS a “fiesta” in a bowl! I hope you love it as much as I do.
