Red, White, and Blue Quinoa Salad, perfect for Fourth of July

Happy Fourth of July! Looking for something new to take to your Fourth of July Celebration? Check out this fun and healthy Red, White, & Blue Quinoa Salad.

Jicama

One of the newest items that I have found a love for is jicama. Jicama is a root that is slightly sweet with the texture similar to a chestnut. Jicama is the white part of this Red, White and Blue Salad and it adds a great crunch to it.

I was so excited I found the jicama at the first store I went to last night. This is an amazing light and fresh salad that is low in calories. Great to take to a potluck or picnic!
