Quinoa is so incredibly versatile and these recipes are really clever! It's amazing how many different ways you can use one simple ingredient.

I'm a vegetarian so quinoa is basically my best friend. It's like the perfect way to add a bit of protein to your salad.

I'm a bit of a quinoa skeptic, but I do love Mexican food and that Southwest Quinoa Salad definitely caught my eye! I'll have to give quinoa another try.

I was going to try quinoa again. These recipes will definitely come in handy. Thanks for sharing!

Hmm, I'm pretty interested in that Sweet Strawberry Quinoa Salad. It looks really good!
