Recipe Description
Here's a salad that's as colorful as it is nutritious. Quinoa (KEEN-wa) is a native grain 0f the Andes mountains, where it has been cultivated for 5,000 years. Sacred to the Incas, it contains more protein than wheat, oats or barley. It's also a good source of calcium, iron, phosphorus and vitamin E. Quinoa can be found at most natural foods stores, gourmet shops and in the rice aisle of many super markets.
