Quinoa Salad

Yesterday I made a delicious lunch. I had leftover quinoa in the 'fridge and decided to make a Quinoa salad with it. Cold quinoa was a first for me and I have to say, I wasn't really looking forward to lunch. But it was amazing! I loved my salad and repeated my recipe for today!
Quinoa Salad
1/2 c Quinoa
1 c Spinach
~10 Heirloom tomatoes
1T feta cheese
1T Girard's lite champagne dressing
*Other topping options: avocados, strawberries, cucumbers, black beans, chicken

This salad was so delicious & fresh. I loved the cold quinoa!
(Excuse the Tupperware & keyboard)

Today I linked up this post with Tasty Tuesday.
