This salad is perfect to make on a warm spring evening when you and/or your family needs something light and refreshing. If you prep your quinoa ahead of time it only takes a little chopping to put this together!

If you have some “only meat eaters” in the family you can grill a piece of organic steak to slice on top of this or chicken works as well! If you’re vegan opt out the Parmesan for a vegan cheese or drizzle with nutritional yeast sauce.
