I love this Quinoa salad because it is light, fresh and easy to toss together, yet it's so delicious that you can serve it at your next party or picnic with family and friends.
I don't add the cucumber until serving time, so they retain their crunch.
My favorite go-to this summer is avocado and tomato!
