So this week’s recipe ended up being not so pretty to look at, but is definitely good enough to eat. I was excited to make this recipe – we LOVE quinoa at our house! You can find our favorite quinoa recipe here – it’s actually on the menu at our house this week.
This was a fairly simple salad, I used raisins and walnuts in ours. I would have liked to have tried some other fruits and nuts, but a trip to the grocery store was not in the cards yesterday. I had a fairly full day which included driving one hour to the North End of the Island to get soccer cleats for my son and then another hour home – when I got home my husband looked at the cleats and quickly informed me they were for baseball, not soccer. I had absolutely no clue that there were different cleats for different sports!
If I had only skipped the trip up North and spent some time at the grocery store I think the dish could have been much improved! I am looking forward to trying it again with some dried cranberries and blueberries. I also thought a little feta cheese might be nice?
