Recipe: Quinoa Salad with Holland House Red Wine Vinaigrette

This year I have been on a mission to try new foods. Thus I found the perfect salad to accompany grilled boneless pork chops… quinoa salad. The flavor of this grain is like beans so this might well be an alternative to the usual rice and beans.

So, when I got the #MizkanLatino challenge thought this is the perfect recipe. It is very easy to prepare and delicious!
