Spring Salad with Quinoa

Warmer weather has arrived and you know what that means. Yep, it is almost time to sport that bathing suit. Here is a simple healthy salad to help you achieve that goal. I like to make quinoa in advance and keep it in the fridge or freeze it in 1/4 cup portions. It makes a great snack or a quick protein addition to a salad.
