Quinoa Salad

First of all, when you buy a new camera that you think is going to make your life easier, but instead, you get fuzzy-looking photos like these, it's frustrating. I'm re-reading my manual so hopefully the photos improve soon!

So I was inspired to try a quinoa salad this week by seeing Picky Palate's Post about Sesame Quinoa Orange Salad. Unfortunately, I had maybe HALF of the ingredients that her recipe called for...but I made it anyway! This post really isn't about the recipe, although it is about having my quinoa salad on a bed of spring greens and it was really great.

Quinoa has a lot of protein, so I didn't feel like I needed to add any grilled chicken to it, but the addition of feta really made the whole dish come together. What a great lunch!

I've also read in some healthy eating magazines to replace your breakfast oatmeal with plain quinoa, and it is a complete meal, with the protein and carbs in one tasty grain. Try some quinoa soon!
