Quinoa is gaining in popularity and for good reason! Quinoa is a healthy wheat alternative and can be made in a variety of ways. Personally, I love pairing quinoa with a slightly sweet fruit.

Try this delicious Cranberry and Quinoa Salad. You’re sure to be surprised as it’s not often you can find a recipe that is both festive and refreshing. Most holiday recipes are heavy and calorie-dense often leaving you feeling stuffed and lethargic.

A signature recipe in new bestseller, Healthy You!, this Cranberry and Quinoa Salad is sure to please the entire family and it’s perfect for any time of year. It’s hearty enough to complement the holiday turkey yet light enough to remind you of a warm spring day. Bring it to the office for a light and healthy lunch or serve it at a family gathering, as it’s sure to be one of the most popular and talked about side dishes.

Oh my, as someone who wants to omit wheat from my diet, nothing gets better than a salad using two of my favorite ingredients: cranberries and quinoa. I will be sure to give this a go as part of a healthful addition to weight loss that comes from a wheat-free “diet.”

Having a luncheon. Now far ahead could this be made? I avoid all recipes that say “serve at once/immediately”….even when not entertaining!
