Asian Quinoa

I found I had quinoa in my pantry the other day while looking for some baking supplies. Score! I have plums I have quinoa that means it’s time to make a salad.

You can make this earlier in the day or even the day before if you like the longer you let it sit the more the flavors mingle.

I have the recipe calories figured out as a side dish, but this would also be a great lunch with a chicken breast. For lunch I would use two servings so double the nutritional facts.
