FRESH THAI QUINOA SALAD WITH PEANUT SAUCE #vegetarian #salad #sauce #yummy #vegetarian

Beautiful, crunchy Thai Quinoa Salad prepared in the most astonishing hand crafted garlic-ginger shelled nut sauce! (Veggie lover, sans gluten, and sans oil)

This plate of mixed greens is overflowing with brilliant rainbow hues, delectable Thai flavors, a lot of new crunch, and wonderful plant-based sustenance. I'm ceaselessly amazed at how agreeably filling it is! The key segment for me is extremely the shelled nut sauce. Delightful, appetizing, thus loaded with flavor! Besides it's an incredible decision for make-ahead suppers and snacks (despite everything it tastes magnificent the following day after the flavors get an opportunity to blend.

I've made forms of this serving of mixed greens with the quinoa base seen here and furthermore the more ordinary rice noodles, and appreciate it the two different ways so don't hesitate to substitute the quinoa for your very own preferred noodles/rice noodles also. I end up inclining more towards the quinoa choice for both the sustenance help and once in a while the fragile rice noodles break separated on me making somewhat of a wreck.
