Kiddo’s Quinoa Salad

Our addiction to quinoa, all started when a friend challenged me to make quinoa taste good.  She was convinced that quinoa was just a “glorified dirt”.  I was challenged to put together 21 recipes with quinoa and it HAD to taste good.  Lucky for me I have 4 built-in super honest taste testers…aka my kiddos!  Trust me, if they don’t like it…these little monkeys will find a way to get rid of it or pelt it at each other.  However, this quinoa salad passed the test and it is now part of their lunchbox staple!
