You know how I love me a good salad, right? In fact, salads are something that I tend to eat with practically every meal, regardless of the season… or the occasion, for that matter!

Even on Christmas, I like to have some kind of salad on the table. Of course, I like to dress it up for the occasion, though! Like this beauty, right here, for instance. It looks so pretty with all its jewel-like colors, its beautiful reds and vibrant greens, I’m sure you’d have no problem fitting it into your Christmas menu, even if your guests or family members weren’t really into eating “rabbit food” on the big day.

You can make this one a few hours ahead of time, and it comes together in mere minutes, really, providing that you have leftover quinoa in your fridge. If you don’t, simply take a few minutes the previous day to cook a cup of dry quinoa and then leave that in the fridge to cool until the next day.
