Fresh Quinoa Salad

Did you see it?

I posted this delicious little diddy on Modern Hen Home’s Facebook page last week.

It’s the perfect salad in my opinion — sweet, savory, crunchy, creamy, healthy.

Anything but boring!

And while my husband had sesame ginger salmon sizzling on the grill, I poked a few holes in an extra large sweet potato with a fork, zapped it in the microwave for 5 minutes, split it down the middle and added a pat of butter on both sides for us to share.

Wallah… dinner served!

Quick and easy gourmet that doesn’t break the bank and takes less than 30 minutes to prepare. I found the sesame ginger marinade at Kroger near the salad dressings.
