Quinoa Salad - Coeliac Sanctuary
Posted On: 27th May 2015
Salads don't have to be just plain boring lettuce, cucumber and tomato. This salad has a quinoa base, this is one that would also work well with gluten free couscous if you aren't a fan of quinoa. Perfect for a working lunch in the sometime, it's a bit more bulked out than a standard salad to make it more filling.
