Quinoa Tuna Alfalfa Salad

I hit the grocery store earlier today to stock up on greens and healthy foods. It felt so good to peruse the vegetable and fruit section looking for some ingredients I had never used in my kitchen before. Among other things, I picked up a bunch of alfalfa sprouts. I love them! They taste earthy and healthy and provide such visual artistry to a dish as if small-headed aliens they poke out of the salad like curious antennas. I used them to make this delicious Quinoa Tuna Alfalfa Salad for dinner today. This combo of veggies was killer!
