Orange Quinoa Salad
Today is the first day of school after winter break. We ate this orange quinoa salad frequently. I personally enjoyed this last 2 weeks of vacation as much as my daughters did. It’s refreshing to break out of our usual routine and enjoy our time together. We were lucky enough to travel North during our Holiday break and play with the snow.
This delicious Orange Quinoa Salad served with pecans, cranberries and crispy Edamame on top. It’s crunchy, colorful and refreshing. Since the Pot Pies are creamy and comforting, it pairs perfectly with a sweet and crunchy salad. Click HERE for more Quinoa Recipes.
I hope you can try this delicious Orange Quinoa Salad at home. If you do, please upload a pic on Instagram and tag me @Livingsweetmoments or use the hashtag #LivingSweet. I promise to repost it.
