Broquinoa – Quinoa Broccoli salad

Broquinoa – Quinoa Broccoli salad

Here is a great healthy recipe for a side dish that goes with so many things and also can be eaten by itself.

I can’t take credit for this healthy recipe as I have seen different versions of this but most are loaded with mayo and sugar. My version is much healthier and I also added the quinoa which has protein and lots of amino acids. Quinoa is on of the few grains that has all nine of the essential amino acids. So if you looking for a healthy side this summer, look no further. Please feel free to comment or share your version of the healthy¬†recipe or any on my blog.
