Quinoa Cranberry Salad Recipe

This Quinoa Cranberry Salad recipe will make 2 good sized servings.

The flavours work so well together that once you've made and tasted this - you'll be planning to make it again pretty soon!

This has become one of my favourite salad dishes. The flavours of the curry powder combined with coriander, lime and cranberries provide a spicy, tart, sweet experience.​
