When the winter months roll around please don’t feel like its time to bust out the crockpot and bunker down for a season of protein and potatoes, although I do love some potatoes. This Colorful Warm Quinoa Salad is filled with plenty of raw and crisp fruits and vegetables and the savory yet sweet dressing pulls it all together for one amazing meal or side dish.
We love Mexican food in our home and as my daughter would say, “like literally” we could eat it everyday. And when we tell people that Mexican food is our favorite and we are always creating Mexican dishes and dining at Mexican restos we all agree that Mexican food is the BEST! Inevitably, we will talk about our favorite dishes and I will hear Carne’ Asada, Chicken Enchiladas and children almost always say queso.
Simple salads with fresh, local ingredients have always been a favorite of mine. Often times it happens to be that I’m dining at a fresh Farm to Table restaurant or hitting up a Farmer’s Market on Saturday morning and will order salad for my entrée, simply because I know how fresh it will be.
