The best thing about summer (when we talk about food) is that we eat a lot of different salads and this Quinoa Salad with Red Cabbage is perfect for summer days.
Salads are filling, enough for lunch or dinner. Some people think that salads are not for them because they’re not hearty, they’re not like meat.
We like salads very much and we eat them quite often. You can make them with greens or not, just a mix of vegetables and a dressing.
Today’s salad is without greens, just vegetables, and quinoa. If you haven’t tried quinoa before, I really recommend you to do it, it’s delicious and so healthy and good for you.
- Quinoa is very nutritious, is full of protein, fiber, potassium
- Is very good for blood sugar control
