Southwestern Quinoa Salad | 30-Minute Meal - The Produce Moms

Recipe courtesy of our brand partner, Peri & Sons.

This gluten-free side dish makes a nice alternative to a heavy pasta salad and, being mayo-free, makes a great dish to take to a picnic or pot-luck where it might sit out for awhile. It stores well, covered and refrigerated, for up to three days.
