Fresh Vegetable Quinoa Salad with Peanut Sauce Dressing

This Fresh Vegetable Quinoa Salad rocked my world last week!  I think I ate this for lunch 3 days in a row. If I hadn’t have run out of dressing, I probably would have eaten it the rest of the week as well.  The peanut sauce dressing is light, and refreshing, and has a bit of a bite. I love the ginger, cilantro, and citrus notes, and adding fresh veggies always get me excited about anything I’m making. Try this salad, without chicken, as a side, or have it for the main event by adding cooked diced chicken breast before you toss it. Make this. Eat it.  I dare you to tell me you don’t like it. I dare you.
