Our students’ and faculties’ recent familiarity with quinoa has allowed us to introduce some new varieties on our salad bars. Quinoa can range from many different colors such as white to pink or red to brown.  Below is a black quinoa salad that our Salad Chef Wendy prepared last week.

She prepared this colorful creation with corn, red & green peppers and roasted red onions.  Wendy gently tossed the salad in a light lime vinaigrette.  The end result was a bright and delicious summer dish everyone loved!

It was also a highly nutritious meal as black quinoa contains a serving of high quality protein including all nine essential amino acids, as well as, a iron, magnesium and potassium!
