Now that the holiday season is behind us, you may be looking for an easy, healthy dish to start the New Year off on the right foot. My Quinoa Salad with Spinach, Strawberries and Goat Cheese is a light, refreshing dish that’s easy to prepare and it’s really good for you too.
It’s hard to believe that it’s been three years since I first posted about quinoa on my site. Back then, quinoa was an up and coming food that hardly anyone had heard of. Now, quinoa is the “it” food and you can find it everywhere from local grocery stores to restaurant menus. Why is quinoa so popular? It’s because it’s extremely versatile, easy to cook and oh yeah, it also just happens to be a nutritional powerhouse.
