Resolution Salad!!

Happy New Year to everyone!

Most of us make resolutions for the new year for a healthy nutritious diet which embodies the goodness of veggies, looks colorful and tastes great and also matches your diet plan so I thought what better name than a Resolution salad for this January 1st recipe!

I used quinoa in this recipe which I flavored slightly with cumin powder but feel free to try this with brown rice or couscous. If you want to see how I cooked quinoa, please see the recipe at this link where I showed how to cook quinoa perfectly(just skip the veggies added in it).
