Quinoa and appple, what''s not to love? Very easy salad to put together and doesn''t taste too bad either.


This is pretty good and quite healthy. I couldn't find quinoa at my local grocery store so used barley and it turned out just fine.


I had a 60th surprise birthday party for my husband a couple weeks ago. This was one of the salads I made. I had about 35 guest. EVERYONE loved this salad! It was different and tasty! I trippled the amounts given and it turned out very good. Hope you enjoy it too! Nydia
