Turmeric Quinoa Salad

For all my gluten-free gals and guys, this Turmeric Quinoa Salad is for you!

When it comes to grains, quinoa has the most impressive nutritional profile & cooks the fastest. Quinoa is gluten-free & high in protein.

Turmeric has a very distinct & not the best taste; this dish completely masks it but, you can still reap all the benefits. It's the best of both worlds!
