Italian Quinoa Pasta Salad
"Yes, quinoa technically is not pasta, but the combination of the mighty ancient grain with the fresh veggies and zesty Italian inspired dressing, gives the same feel as a delicious pasta salad. With summer in full swing, I love having another variation of pasta salad in my back pocket. It makes the perfect side dish for a summer barbecue, a delicious lunch to prep at the beginning of the week, or a main dishl all on it’s own - warm or cold! What makes this Healthy Italian Quinoa Salad so delicious is is all of the fresh flavors from the vegetables mixed with plenty of salty salami and savory cheese. We’re using both feta cheese and parmesan for a perfect balance of tangy-ness and saltiness. You can use my homemade dressing recipe or use your favorite Italian store-bought one - either way it’ll be delicious!"
