Fresh Spinach Tomato Goat Cheese Quinoa Salad

Spinach Tomato Goat Cheese Quinoa Salad

I love that quinoa is very versatile and can be used in many ways. I used to go to this healthy cafe near my work once or twice a week, and the only thing I would order was their goat cheese quinoa salad, which was delicious. After a while, though I felt it was costly for its size and ingredients, I decided to make my own Spinach Tomato Goat Cheese Quinoa Salad. I’m happy that I pretty much nailed it on my first try, and I am happier knowing that I didn’t have to spend a lot of money to make it.
