Summer Salad for alllll those BBQs!! - Westport Moms

With July 4th weekend just behind us, we are totally in the swing of summer!  There are so many backyard BBQs and outdoor dining days to attend!  Instead of a traditional pasta salad, try this recipe next time you host or visit friends for a meal.  Quinoa is high-fiber, gluten-free, high protein, good for healthy bones, filled with antioxidants, and heart-healthy. In other words, it’s a “superfood”!  Adding all these veggies to eat the rainbow and this apple cider vinegar (ACV) dressing really make it super healthy for the gut, digestion, and of course your skin.
