I wanted to make a salad that would be ideal for the festive table. It should be easy and quick to make, delicious, refreshing and healthy. I also wanted it to be made beforehand and not at the last minute. So I made this yummy quinoa salad with veggies, walnuts, pomegranate, scented with orange and dill. It is also a beautiful colorful dish that will impress your guests.

Happy Friday, dear friends!
