EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Salad will keep for a day or two so it can be made hours before you need to serve it.

Replacing the water with chicken broth when cooking the quinoa gives it lots of flavor.

Feel free to get creative and add some feta cheese, olives, oregano, or other cheeses and spices.
