Lemon Tahini Dill Quinoa Salad

March 16, 2014


It was a great weekend with John and Ash!  Unfortunately I don’t have any pics to show our competitive paddle game, 3 hour-happy hour, demolished box of gourmet cupcakes or 5 mile run. 

I do have some healthy quinoa salad though.


Perfect to get you in the mood for spring.  And spring break.  And vacation. 

Great to eat as leftovers, or lunches.

Or to serve company.
