Tropical Quinoa Salad -this salad is loaded with pineapple, mango and Mandarin oranges, and it’s also a great source of protein from the quinoa cooked in coconut milk.
This salad couldn’t come at a more appropriate time.
I am actually packing my bags and have my stuff all over my bedroom because I’m leaving for a cruise in the Tropics tomorrow and I am SO very excited!
I, along with a fantastic group of bloggers, will be cruising through the Caribbean Islands to learn, brainstorm and relax on a week long trip. Fun in the sun!
