Almond, Apricot & Quinoa Salad
Quinoa (KEEN-wah) is a tiny grain with a texture lighter than rice. It cooks quickly, and is packed with more nutrients than most grains. Quinoa is coated with saponins, a natural pest deterrent. Althoughharmless to consume, it has a bitter taste so quinoa must be rinsed before use.
