  1. This not only looks great it is!!. Absolutely delicious. Made a salad of red leaf lettuce, sliced red beet, cucumbers, tomatoes, spinach, avocado and hemp hearts. Added the quinoa, dressed it with lemon, olive oil, agave, and a splash of pomegranate vinegar & cream sherry. Yummalicious, thank you for the recipe.
