I have fallen in love with quinoa lately! This ancient grain is so tasteful and versatile. On top of that it is packed with nutrients and is rich in protein. Today I present you a salad inspired by Mexico! It is tasteful, filling and you can have it as a light meal too. I forgot to add avocado. It would have matched perfectly. This salad is perfect even if you eat it after 2-3 days!
Have a lovely weekend, my dear friends!
