Recipe: Citrus Quinoa Salad

Yields1 ServingPrep Time10 minsCook Time15 minsTotal Time25 mins

Sometimes a salad has lettuce & sometimes it doesn’t. In this case quinoa is the star (which it often is in my recipes.) Citrus is a star here too. So is my Lemon Honey Salad Dressing, which ties it all together.
