Quick and Healthy Quinoa Salad

The star of this light, fresh salad is GOYA® Quinoa, a small seed from the Andes with big nutritional benefits. Quinoa has a higher percentage of protein than any grain, and is packed with calcium, iron, vitamins, and amino acids. 

In this quinoa salad recipe, the mild, nutty flavor of quinoa is brightened with lemon juice, GOYA® Pickled Jalapeños, fresh tomato, and cilantro. Delicious and nourishing, this salad is also gluten free.
