As promised some time back I’m promptly back with another Quinoa recipe!This is a salad served in Endive Boats.Absolutely delicious and perfect for today’s gorgeous spring weather.As the weather gets warmer shedding those extra pounds off our body is not a bad idea.After all, we’ve got to get into those summery outfits, don’t we?This recipe will not only help you shed those extra pounds but will also do your body A LOT of good!Quinoa as we all know is extremely healthy, low in carbs, full of vitamins and minerals, a light and nutritious meal that is good and good for you.
This salad has a range of flavors and looks very elegant.Ideal served as your lunch or as a salad for a party.The contrasting textures from the crunchy Endive and Cucumber and the soft and creamy Avocados and Quinoa itself makes for a very interesting mix.The Balsamic dressing and the Raisins add the sweet and acidic hit to the salad.Overall a winner 🙂
