Quinoa Caprece Salad

A few weeks ago, we went again to Portland Parkway Sundays, one of my absolute favorite past times in the pacific northwest. Here one of the main sponsors was sharing this fabulous recipe and I wanted to share it all with you. If you haven’t noticed already, I love quinoa and I also love a good Caprese salad. This is a fabulous combination of the two. I hope you can enjoy it for some summer barbeques and as always if you like it, share it please.
