"You should post this recipe on your blog," said my hubby as he took another mouthful of my Quinoa Salad. "It's really good!" So here it is. My doctor had encouraged me to incorporate fennel in my diet (it's good for your digestion), so I added a touch to this dish, and I have to say, it took the taste from good to really good. What I like best about quinoa, besides the fact that it's such a healthy grain, is that it's so fast and easy to prepare.
Like many dishes I prepare, I improve on them over time. Now I cook many of the ingredients along with the quinoa instead of adding them afterwards. Adding pesto when it's available is another change. Here's the updated version.
Prep Time: 15 minutes Cook Time: 15 minutes Servings: 4
