Greek Salad With Quinoa- Great Vegetarian and Gluten-Free Dish

Spice up your salad with this yummy but healthy addition. Quinoa is a great source of a complete protein.  So this is a great vegetarian and gluten free dish.  If you wanted it to be vegan just leave out the cheese.

Let us know if you try it @ArcherBrighton.. it’s great!
