Red Quinoa Salad Recipe from Singer Bari Koral That’s Delish And Easy


Red quinoa and strawberries are a match made in heaven in this savory sweet salad from children’s musician Bari Koral. “This is a light and refreshing salad which, once the quinoa is prepared, takes very little time to make,” says Bari. “The crunch of granola also adds a lot of flavor and texture to the dish.”  This salad makes for a great simple summer supper, and also works great as left overs.
