Quinoa is an absolute favorite of mine because of its versatility. And with 8 grams of complete protein per cup, it's an excellent source of plant-based protein. This salad version is so flavorful, it makes a great side for meat eaters or main dish for vegetarians. Vegan? No problem! Simply omit the cheese.
I love making my own dressings. It helps control exactly what goes into my body, avoiding additives that are typically found in store bought versions. Making dressings at home also gives the freedom to tailor a dressing to your preference.
