Quinoa Salad

I am on a quest for healthier living and eating, and am also using Advocare products on this journey. I am going to post several of the "clean-eating" recipes I've used recently over the next few weeks. Hope you enjoy these! 

(** You can read more about my Advocare journey on my other blog - Some Days You Gotta Dance. I am posting two-week updates over there.)

Quinoa Salad
(This is a salad I created after eating one similar that Publix sells.)

Pine Nuts
Spinach Leaves
Juice of lime

Cook the quinoa as directed. Once cooled, mix in the craisins, edamame, pine nuts, and spinach leaves.

Pour the juice of one lime over the mixture and add cilantro to your taste. Refrigerate and marinate overnight.

** You can use other types of nuts, beans or raisins in this mixture.
