Vegetable Quinoa Salad

Vegetable quinoa salad is packed with fresh garden vegetables, loads of protein, and a lot of flavor.  It would make a great side dish or even a stand-alone lunch.

In my combined effort to eat healthier and clean out my fridge, I put together this fresh vegetable quinoa salad. It was the perfect way to use those little bits of fresh veggies that seem to hang out in my refrigerator produce drawer until they rot.

I have to ask: Is it just me that forgets about the delicious produce hiding in my refrigerator, or does that happen to you too? I really need to sharpen my long term memory skills.
Anyway, if you’re not familiar with quinoa, allow me to fill your brain with some food fuel.
