Greek Quinoa Salad Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Vegan

What’s not to like about this salad? I have always liked the taste of Quinoa and its healthy properties are just a bonus. Quinoa is a wonderful source of protein, fiber and calcium.  This is a great light, but filling, dish.  It was the perfect food for me after the heavy food of the holidays.
I especially like this salad in the summer when there is an abundance of fresh produce.
In case you can’t tell, I love this colorful salad.
