Let’s talk Quinoa for a moment, shall we? It’s funny looking, weird, and a relatively newer craze. My husband won’t touch the stuff – no matter whether he’d like it or not. It’s too weird looking for him to even attempt to eat it. It’s not easy to hide, either (I may or may not know this from experience!) Quinoa Salads are so easy to make and have on hand, and they’re great to have at parties.
My 6 year old loves it and would eat quinoa salads every day if I made them. It’s pronounced KEEN-wah. Let’s just all get this correct, once and for all. Quinoa is super high in protein, so you can knock out some of that in one bowl of these delicious Quinoa Salads, and Quinoa is also naturally gluten-free, so it’s perfect for healthy eaters.
Make sure to wash your Quinoa before cooking it. The surface of quinoa contains a chemical called saponin that has a bitter soapy taste.
