Friends! Can you feel that beat of spring going through your veins already? Guest blogger Daphne certainly can! She just made this amazing, fresh spring salad that you should definately try! She’s sharing the recipe with us:
The sun begins to shine a bit more, giving me that spring feeling. I therefore decided to make a fresh salad to increase that feeling. The salad turned out so good; it seriously tastes like heaven!
The base of this salad is quinoa. Quinoa is a very healthy seed that is free of wheat and gluten. It has a lot of health benefits and is a really good option for vegetarians. It gives
you a lot of energy and is full of vitamin b2, antioxidants and fibers.
Mango gives the salad a fresh touch and the greek feta makes it a bit more creamy. Pine nuts and rocket give the salad an extra bite.
Making this healthy and refreshing salad only takes 20 minutes of your time. I can’t think of any reason why you shouldn’t make this quick, healthy and delicious meal!
