Tex-Mex Quinoa Salad With Chili-Lime Dressing
May 28, 2020
"A great side to grilled meats or a light lunch. Some quinoa comes rinsed and some don't...please read package before using. Using a blend of red and white quinoa is very pretty, but not necessary. Grilling the the corn makes it even it better. The cook time does not reflect the 4 hour refrigeration time. This makes 8 cups."
