I had a quinoa salad from the salad bar at Whole Foods the other week. It was so good, I had to try making it on my own. I found a few ‘copycat’ recipes online and then made my own version. It took me a few tries to get the dressing like I wanted, but my friends and neighbors helped me eat the trials with no complaints!
