EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

The amount of vinaigrette may seem like a lot for this dish, but it’s not. The longer the salad chills, the more the quinoa will soak up the dressing.

Remove the seeds from the cucumber before slicing, if desired.

This salad is great served alongside grilled chicken or as a meatless entrée.
