Fruity Quinoa Salad

This is a very light and fresh quinoa salad that takes a very minimal amount of time to prepare. You can make it at the beginning of the week and keep in your fridge for up to 3 days to pair with different meals all week. It’s a great compliment to the collard green wraps above or under grilled fresh fish for dinner.
